Personal Tax Tip: How do I claim professional or union dues?

If you incur professional membership dues as a requirement for your place of employment, then these dues are deductible for tax purposes.

If your employer pays for these fees, they the employee may or may not have a taxable benefit, this is dependent on whether there is a benefit to the employer or solely the employee. Please see below:

Benefit for employee only: rembursemnt of dues are a a taxable benefit.

Benefit for employer: reimbursement of dues are not a taxable benefit.
