    Ive been told that my AUX uniform is a tax deduction but im not really sure what thats means.. Im about to pay for my uniform here shortly and havent done my taxs yet. Does that mean I will be re embursed on my taxes by the government? I'm sorry if this seems ignorant. Im just not vey good with this kind of stuff.

    You have not bought them yet? You cannot take the deduction this year. Right now you are filing for money earned and spent in 2011. If you buy the uniforms tomorrow, in 2013 you can claim those on your 2012 returns. But not this year unless you bought something prior to December 31st can you claim it for this April.

    I believe these expenses are entered under charitable contributions. If you do your own and use tax software, it will tell you how to enter it. Old Guard 2 is correct about the tax year.

    Taxes are a little complicated for Aux. stuff. In some ways you get to claim things as if you are an unpaid employee while in others you have to regard your contributions as charitable. You really need to talk to some of the more senior members of your unit. If you live in some states that support the Aux. you may be entitled to a specific state income tax deduction. In Maryland you get a $3500 deduction from your income once you've been in the Aux. for more than 3 years. That's in addition to your expenses.

    Really, get one of the folks in your Flotilla or maybe in the Division leadership to go over this with you. It can make a major difference in what you owe the Fed, State and Local governments for your income tax.

    What was stated above also is correct. What you do in 2012 applies to your tax year 2012 taxes. I think there might be an exception for cash or cash equivalent donations that are considered charitable but you REALLY need to speak with someone in your chain of leadership and maybe also a tax professional about that.
