Can I get a mileage deduction for working overtime?

My husband normally works five days a week, but very often he has to work extra on Saturday. He gets paid for it, but his employer will not pay for the mileage. Can he claim this mileage as a business expense?

Assuming the mileage is for commuting from your home to his job and back, it’s a non-deductible personal expense.
