Are RNAO fees tax deductible?

As the College of Nurses of Ontario required all nurses registered to practice in Ontario to hold Professional Liability Protection as of March 31, 2014 and RNAO membership satisfies such requirement, RNAO fees may be tax deductible.If you are unsure about your circumstances, it's best to seek professional advice.
