With tax season getting closer I am starting to get everything in order. I was wondering how much of the supplies that I have had to purchase for school can be claimed on my taxes. I am married, me and my wife file a joint return and she was the only one working during 2015 while I was a full time student. I already know that I do not have to claim money received from my GI Bill every month but was course if my Miller shield, boots, multiple pairs of gloves, chipping hammer etc. would be something we could claim on our taxes. I know its probably something best suited to ask an accountant but was wondering if anyone has any info/experience with this before so I know if its worth getting all my receipts together or not. Thank you for any info/insight that anyone can provide.
