is the mileage round trip or one way? Say I go to the grocery store for business groceries. Do I track the mileage one way or round trip?

Tom Copeland

Count mileage round trip. You can claim a trip only if the primary purpose of the trip is business. When it is, claim the round trip miles.


If I am claiming my mileage, for a contract labor job, can I claim round trip miles or is it one way?

Tom Copeland

You can count round trips to a contract labor job as a mileage deduction.

Carrie Diehl

My daycare site is not in my home. Can I count daily mileage from my home to the site as deductions?


No,because this is considered "commuting." You can deduct business trips to and from your place of business or to and from your home.


I was at one of your trainings and I remember you talking about an app that can be downloaded to a phone that can help record mileage, what is the name or that app? Thanks
