I am required to drive for my job and I keep records of my business mileage but not the actual gas receipts. What records do I need to qualify for a business mileage tax deduction?

To qualify for a business mileage tax deduction you will claim either the standard mileage rate or actual expenses. Here’s how to keep mileage records for each:  

  • To claim actual expenses related to your business mileage, you must have receipts or other financial records (Ex: bank statements) showing how much you actually spent.
  • For the standard mileage rate deduction, you just need to keep a log book of the daily miles you drive for business.
