Say I am a teacher. A lot of teachers use their after-tax salary to pay for paper, pens, printing (etc) for school purposes. Is there a way to claim tax back since it is a work expense? In this case, the school does not refund the money.
Unfortunately, you won't be able to claim this expenditure as a deduction. There are limited expense deductions allowable for salaried employees. It would be best to motivate for the school to reimburse you for these purchases.
