I have a tax question about deducting mileage for medical care. Can I deduct mileage for medical appointments and dental visits from my tax return?
The IRS allows you to deduct mileage for medical care if the transportation costs are mainly for — and essential to — the medical care.
When deducting mileage for medical care, you can use either of these methods:
- Standard mileage rate for a personal vehicle — $0.20 per mile
- Actual expenses you’ve allocated to the use of the vehicle for medical transportation:
- Parking fees
Actual expenses don’t include:
- License and registration fees

Your options for your tax filing status if your spouse dies will change depending on how long ago they passed away. For example, you can generally use married filing jointly in the year your spouse passes. Then in the next two years, you can file as a qualifying widower if you meet certain requirements.
