Customer Question
How much does irs...

How much does irs allow per mile on personal vehicle used for charitable work?

Accountant's Assistant: The Accountant will know how to help. Please tell me more, so we can help you best.

I do travel for the BSA during the summer, and I use my vehicle to drive to my doctors several times a year. How much can I deduct per mile for my personal vehicle?

Accountant's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Accountant should know?

No, I just need to calculate to enter on my itemized deduction worksheet.
