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 — .17 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
