Lesson 8: Arriving at Taxable Income
Hi – I know that the Miscellaneous Deduction has been suspended; therefore, reimbursed employee mileage is no longer deductible. Can individuals still deduct mileage related to medical and charitable travel? If so, how is this deduction taken?
Good question and the answer is generally yes.
Only those itemized deductions in the “Miscellaneous” group were impacted.
Itemized deductions for charitable donation and medical expense in excess of 10% of AGI remain deductible.
Charitable mileage remains deductible as part of one’s charitable deduction and medical mileage remains a legitimate expense for purposes of calculating the medical deduction.
