Want To Claim Tax For Laundry Expenses For Work Uniforms I Work In The Nhs Hospital Since

UK tax rebate on laundry for uniforms that have a logo?

It's not the logo as such, but that you could not reasonably be expected to wear your uniform in your private life. Very few people would wear a garment with a logo going shopping at the weekend, say, which is one reason people claiming this allowance get asked about logos.
If you claim, it is likely that your employer will be asked if he supplies laundry facilities at work, as if he does, you don't have a claim, there being no expense involved to you.
Off the top of my head, allowance may be about £50. With tax at 20%, that will be £10 in your pocket. It is possible employer and HMRC have already come to some agreement about an employee's entitlement to the allowance, which would then be a fixed sum.
You don't state the nature of your job, or what industry you are in. Some industries have a union-agreed flat rate allowance, and it may be possible for you to get this instead. Amounts vary depending on industry and work involved, but it is likely to be a bit higher than a laundry allowance.
Cornish Granny: your chef should be able to get flat-rate allowance, as he is in the food industry. If he gets that, it would be considered to include any laundry expense.

What line do you claim uniforms on?

Most employees can not claim employment expenses. If you are eligible to claim expenses against employment income, you must submit a completed Form T777 and keep a completed copy of Form T2200, Declaration of Conditions of Employment signed by your employer.

The cost of special clothing or footwear (or haircuts) required for your job is not deductible.

They introduced the Canada Employment Amount a few years ago to recognise certain expenses such as uniforms. He will be able to claim the full amount of $1044 on line 363.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. It would be nice to be able to claim uniforms since I work in health care and my husband is in the military.

How do I claim back overpaid tax? I want to claim for professional subscriptions and laundry expenses.?

I think you will find that the £18 expense allowance for shoes and tights went up to £25 some years ago, but it can only be claimed by nurses, not other healthcare workers. Revenue rules are quite strict on this.
You can claim professional subscriptions to certain professional bodies, they have to be on the Revenue approval list, and the nature of your employment has to meet the criteria.
Your laundry allowance is officially known as Fixed Rate Expenses, and is union agreed. To the poster who told you not to be silly, it can be given to a taxpayer who has to wear a uniform or logo-ed clothing at work, that couldn't be worn in private life. The terms of employment must say that you have to launder the clothes at your own expense, and your employer does not provide facilities for you to do this at work.
Do NOT go to one of those thieving 40% taker agencies. Write to the tax office shown on your last form P60. If you worry about forms P87, you will have to do one for each year. I wouldn't bother.
Get your claim in before 5th April. If you don't, the earliest year will be out of date, and you will lose it.

Can i claim off my tax for cleaning of nurse uniform?

Yes, its a expenses. ask your admin department to do this for you. Also use of the normal washing machine, washing powder etc.
I used to do the admin for WH smiths, and put through an aprox cost of washing the uniform for every employee once a year.

If you admin does not do this, they are just lasy or over worked and don't bother.

If your told to do your own, you will have to submit a tax return yourself. You should not have to if your employed.
