commiting mile how to know how many for year its required by IRS or i can leave it blank ?

Answer

Hello there, A,

If you're referring to commuting miles, the IRS considers it as a personal expense which is not deductible. Commuting occurs when you go from home to a permanent work location-either your:

  • Office or another principal place of business, or
  • Another place where you have worked or expect to work for more than one year.

In QuickBooks Self-Employed, you tag it as a personal mileage. You can check this article on how you can use mileage deduction in QBSE: https://community.intuit.com/articles/1763074.

If you have more questions about mileage, let me know by leaving a comment below.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
