I am not self employed and work from home half a day, then work at my office for the second half. Does having multiple offices (home and work) qualify me for any type of yearly tax mileage reimbursement or deduction, even though I'm not self-employed?

Our tax laws have not caught up to the trend of telecommuting. If your employer provides an office for you at its work location, then working at home generally doesn't qualify for a home office deduction, and there is no tax deduction for commuting from your home to work and back.
