Preparing travel nurse tax returns has become significantly less complicated under the new Trump Tax Bill. Effectively most travel nurses no longer will be required to itemize their business-related expenses. While some benefited from this, for others it was a compliance nightmare. Travel Nurses had to pay $400-800 to have their tax returns prepared and often they weren’t even prepared correctly. Those who opted for the DYI solutions of various tax packages spent time doing it wrong or frustrated with filing state tax returns.
