Tax Deduction Question
Help please! With tax season upon us I want to make sure everything I do is right.
I have my own little side business that I've been running (pet sitting out of people's homes) and i have been keeping track of my earnings to report on my taxes so that I do everything legally and don't get in trouble.
Well a while ago a friend from work told me I could claim travel time/mileage on the taxes as part of the deductions. I looked it up and sure enough you can claim 56 cents per mile for business travel.
But what I'm wondering is how many of the miles do I claim? Only one way? The round trip? every mile that was driven for my pet sitting jobs?
I have tried researching this myself, but I'm not finding the answer/
If anyone knows please help!
