Is commuting deductible outside normal business hours?

I have heard two different opinions on my question below and would love your expert opinion.

I know that commuting from home to work is not deductible, but is commuting to work from home outside normal business hours?

Thank you,

Hello Renata,

No. There is no distinction between commuting during regular business hours or outside normal business hours.

Good luck!
