Medical - Save money on your taxes with this fuel allowance method
Every year the IRS publishes the new amount for the deductible or allowance on fuel for your vehicle if you fall under their assigned situation.
Medical And Moving Mileage Rate
The medical mileage rate for a tax allowance or tax deduction is set for the year 2016 at 19 cents and that is roughly a half of the business mileage rate.
The amount for medical mileage deduction isn't much but it actually covers the cost for gas and a little more for most of us.
The taxpayer may use the medical and moving standard mileage rate to compute the deduction for the automobile, as medical care described in §213 or as a moving expense deductible under §217.
