The nursing regulator has highlighted that most registered staff are still failing to claim back the tax relief they are due on the annual fee.
The NMC said this week that 70% of nurses and midwives were not claiming tax relief on their annual registration fee.
Nurses and midwives are eligible to claim tax relief on the NMC annual registration fee, which is worth £20 per year at the current fee level of £100.
It noted they could also be missing out on tax relief worth up to £177on their subscriptions to a union or professional body, laundering of their uniform or for tights and shoes.
Nurses and midwives who have not previously claimed can also claim tax relief for up to the previous four tax years.
The NMC has issued regulator statements in recent years reminding nurses of their rights to claim the money, but claim rates have remained surprisingly low.

The regulator is strongly expected to rubber-stamp plans to increase the annual registration fee from £100 to £120 at its latest council meeting next week.
