Customer Question

11 April 2016 11:18
I am a home health therapist and I use my personal vehicle for work. I am reimbursed $0.45 per mile. I want to know if I can write of the mileage for taxes and if so, how much?Let me be clear. I drove 17,416 miles for business in 2015. I was paid $7,837 (0.45 per mile). Do I deduct 57.5 cents for the entire 17,416 miles or just the 12.5 cents, since I was already reimbursed the 45 cents?

You actually deduct 12.5 cents per mile - not reimbursed business expenses.But the procedure is as following Total deductible expensesMINUS reimbursed expensesResult will be - deductible expenses.Please see reporting instructions here
