How can I claim mileage from one job to another?

Good morning,

I have two jobs and was told I could claim the mileage from one to the other. I have searched and can't figure out what form I need to do this. Could you please help?

Thanks

Hello Christine,

The mileage is claimed first at Form 2106, Employee Business Expenses, and then as a Miscellaneous Itemized Deduction on Schedule A. Note that Miscellaneous Itemized Deductions are reduced by 2% of Adjusted Gross Income, and are not deductible when computing the Alternative Minimum Tax on Form 6251.

It's hard to really get a tax benefit from employee business expenses.

Good luck!
