Tax Deductible Clothing
Did you know certain clothing can be tax deductible? While not all pieces qualify, if you buy apparel specifically for work, you may be able to claim it as a deduction and save money! To determine which items qualify, it’s best to speak to your accountant, but be sure to save your receipts if you purchase any of these great pieces for work.
Military style clothing can sometimes be a tax deduction if you’re wearing it on the job. If you’re searching for military-style gear for work, Dave’s New York has a wide selection of pieces and brands to keep you equipped. Popular brands include Rothco, Alpha Industries and Schott, all of which have apparel and accessories that may work for you. For example, Rothco Military Vintage Paratrooper Cargo Pants are popular in many industries and are extremely durable. The woven 8-pocket trousers hold up well, regardless of the task at hand. The classic military fit means a slightly relaxed fit in the thigh and a regular fit at the bottom. In addition, adjustable pull-tabs at both the waist and ankle help assure a perfect fit for you.
Work boots are another potential tax deduction. If you’re required to wear them for your job, Dave’s has many options for you. In the winter, you certainly can’t beat Sorel steel toe boots or Red Wing boots, like the 2206. This insulated steel toe work boot is great for outdoor jobs this winter. The 400 gram Thinsulate Insulation keeps your feet warm in cold weather, and the RW Dry Waterproof Membrane means you’ll stay dry.
Depending on the nature of your duties, Carhartt full body suits may be tax deductible for you, but even if they aren’t, they offer superb protection from elements like oil, grease, cold air and water. The Carhartt X02 Arctic Quilt Lined Duck Overall will keep you warm working outdoors in winter months with 100% nylon quilted to polyester arctic-weight lining. The durable overall offers triple stitched main seams, a split back with bi-swing, pleated elbows and double knees, so that all of the movement necessary won’t cause ripping. The multiple tool and utility and hammer loop mean you can keep your essentials nearby. Minimize your exposure to the elements with rib knit storm cuffs inside each sleeve, as well as two-way leg zippers opening to the waist with protective wind flaps and a snap closure.
Of course, you should always check with your accountant before making any clothing tax deductions but, depending on your line of work, these pieces may qualify. And be sure to check out Dave’s New York for other sturdy, attractive pieces that will stand up to your toughest work days.
