A new school year often brings new 'volunteer responsibilities' for many parents, PTO meetings, chaperoning, classroom helpers and volunteer-coaches. Assuming your child attends a public school (and you itemize), your mileage to & from those activities ARE deductible, BUT do you know the requirements to deduct those miles?
These requirements also apply to business mileage, including employee travel (not commuting), as well as charitable and medical mileage.
A recent tax court case disallowed the mileage deduction of a CPA because his records did not meet set of IRS requirements.
I use a (very secure) app on my phone which provides me AUTOMATIC documentation of all of the IRS requirements except the business purpose which is the 'easy' part.
