    Default Can you buy used and still claim it?

    Just wondering if it is possible to claim toys and things that are bought used on your taxes? Or does it have to be brand new with a store receipt?

    I don't actually know but I really don't see why you couldn't buy used as long as you are given a receipt whats the difference?

    absolutely. Just ask for a reciept from who you buy it from. It is always handy to have a reciept book in your glove compartment for just those occasions

    That is what I do. Also don't forget to keep tally of your KMs when picking stuff up. That is a write off too.

    Id say u should have no issue.. if self employed farmers can write off used farm equipment, you should totally be able to write off used toys, etc. for your home daycare!

    I never got a receipt from anybody when I bought off kijiji or in private sales or garage sales. I write up a piece of paper with as much information as possible and keep it with my other receipts. It is probably a very wise idea to get receipts though! If I ever get audited I may be in trouble, but I'm hoping that won't happen.
