Charity miles deduction for 2017

Our dear IRS calls it a mileage allowance so we refer to it either way here.Red BMW - www.Mileage_deduction.biz

Charity driven miles are able to be deducted, or as the IRS likes to say, you get an allowance for them.

For the year 2017 is is stil the same as it has been for quite a while - 14 cents per mile.

Charity miles driven in 2017 were given the allowance of 14 cents per mile. This is the same as in 2016 - last year.

If you travel enough miles for business, and medical, you can also add the charity miles into the equation, and get a nice mileage allowance from the IRS.

It is really a little money

The miles add up, and there is no good reason not to get the deduction if you are already going for the mileage allowance anyway.

You do have to keep track of the mileage from the trips, and the IRS wants them to be recorded around the time that you are driving the miles.

So for any trips that you will use the miles for a deduction, you should print the free mileage log on this site.

The Internal Revenue Service will be always be fussy about the accuracy of these records.

The IRS won't let you just guess

And fill it all in at the end of the year. They want it to be exact.

Take into consideration the miles for a trip from your town to a city for charity purposes that qualify for the allowance.

If you travel once a week, and it is 40 miles from home the round trip is 80 miles.

The charity mileage rate allowance would give you a worthwhile deduction per trip of $11.20.

If you make the trip once a week for 10 weeks, you could take a ten times larger charitable mileage deduction of $112.00.

We have discussed on the home page whether or not to choose the method for a tax allowance.
