Some nurses qualify for "tax free money." If the nurse does not have a permanent residence, then there is no housing tax required. Nurses have opportunities to qualify for nontaxable benefits, which include housing stipends, transportation, etc. Travelers will need to complete Tax Home Representation forms before you start your first assignment. Additionally, state taxes may vary depending on where you are traveling. If you're not the most financially-savvy individual, consider asking a financial expert to discover all the ways you can deduct on taxes.
