I was living in one of my daughters garages that I redid
I was living in one of my daughters garages that I redid into an apt. Their property was foreclosed on and sold at auction. Since I was unable to get any money back that I put into it and am on a fixed income, I now live sometimes with another daughter, sometimes with 2 separate friends. I pay personal property taxes each year in the county my daughter lives in. The friends live in adjoining counties. My daughter is concerned that since I am not there full time, that using her address can cause her problems, which I do not want. I do not have enough income to file income taxes, but as I said I do pay personal property taxes. Any help would be appreciated. This is Virginia.

I am self employed and drive about 10,000 miles a year for business. I just sold my SUV and I'm now driving a Toyota Avalon that my parents gave me. I owe nothing on it. Do I still get to deduct the same $ despite using a vehicle that gets better gas mileage.Also, if I make a planned and important business stop (to see a supplier) and leave from there to visit a friend, do I still get to deduct the miles to and from the supplier? Or just to the supplier and the rest is personal?Thanks for your help.
