Employed tradespersons 

You may be able to deduct the cost of eligible tools you bought in 2023 to earn employment income as a tradesperson. This cost includes any GST and provincial sales tax (PST), or HST that you paid.  


As an eligible apprentice mechanic, you must first calculate the tradesperson's tools deduction, if any, that you qualify for.

You may be able to get a rebate of the GST/HST you paid. For more information, see Employee GST/HST rebate. When completing Form GST370, Employee and Partner GST/HST Rebate Application, see if Situation 6 applies to you.
