Medical Mileage

What is the IRS medical mileage allowance for 2014? It is down by a half cent!

The IRS medical mileage deduction for 2014 is set at $0.23.5. Yes that is twenty three and a half cents per mile for 2014

It has changed mid-year in the past as in 2011 so check back for any notification of mileage rate change..

I refer you to the 2013 Mileage Deduction for 2013 Information.

Here is another link for 2013 mileage allowance.

Each year it has been roughly half of the allowance deduction for business miles.

Even though it is a small amount of money it adds up and you should take advantage of every deduction that you can.
Miles driven have to be recorded at the time that they are driven. (Not while driving the car though)

You should print the free mileage log on this site.

The Internal Revenue Service will be concerned about the accuracy of these records.
The IRS won't let you just guess and fill it all in at the end of the year they want it to be exact.

Consider a trip from a small town to a bigger city for specialized treatment once a week.
If the medical facility is 50 miles from home, you have to drive back as well, so it is a 100 mile trip.

The medical mileage rate allowance would give you a worthwhile deduction per trip.
If you make the trip once a week for 10 weeks, you could take a ten times larger medical mileage deduction. Again use the mileage log.
