Employed tradespersons (including apprentice mechanics)
You may be able to deduct the cost of eligible tools you bought in 2016 to earn employment income as a tradesperson and as an eligible apprentice mechanic. This cost includes any GST and provincial sales tax (PST), or HST you paid.
As an eligible apprentice mechanic, you must first calculate the tradesperson's tools deduction, if any, that you qualify for.
