    Does UPS pay anything towards footwear? If so is it nation wide or just in certain areas of the country? What are the requirements?

    I've never heard anything like that. They won't even buy you socks.

    Yeah. It's not much though. A few years ago I claimed about $400 in boots for the year and got around 16 bucks.

    How much will the take off of the total cost? And I'm assuming UPS isn't going to pay a dime unless it's something they want you to wear..

    not sure, would have to ask my CPA, which is a write off too

    not sure why you would call it being a tight wad. Do you like to give money away?

    I feel bad now I was joking. Lol

    They do not take anything off. Like mentioned above you can use it as a tax write off. Anything purchased for work (t shirts/shoes/flashlight etc) count.

    I'm still young, I'd rather pay 50$ and my feet hurt alittle than 200$ and not hurt so bad, ask me in about 15 years lol
     
  18. They've paid me over 100k so far this year that I can use on footwear.

    I had a CPA who used to do my taxes. He was very resourceful. I used to break a lot of shoelaces. lol and since UPS doesn't launder, but requires us to wear uniforms, you can take off the cleaning of them. like soap and cleaners if you have them pressed. They have a grooming standard, and you can take off the cost of haircuts. There is more, but I forgot them. Sorry to see that guy leave us.. He smoked way too many cigarettes.
