In TurboTax, when you get to deductions, you will be asked if you donated to charity and you can include the miles driven to help with the charity. TurboTax will do the calculations for you. You can also put the details of your travel into TurboTax ItsDedcutible https://turbotax.intuit.com/personal-taxes/itsdeductible/ and it will transfer the information to your tax return.

Can I use my non reimbursed portions of my travel, Fuel and oil expenses, overnight accommodations, parking and tolls etc…. as a deduction?

Thanks

]]>Thanks again! ]]>

Not exactly. First you have to make sure you can itemize your deductions so your deductions have to be more than $6,100 if you’re single and $12,200 if you’re married filing jointly. If you can itemize you would take the amount related to volunteering and all your other itemized deductions and deduct them from your adjusted gross income on your federal tax return. Then your tax rate which determines the amount of taxes you pay will be based on your adjusted gross income less itemized deductions. For instance, if your adjusted gross income is $30,000 you would subtract your itemized deductions say $10,000. Your taxable income would be $20,000. The tax rate on $20,000 is 15% so your tax would be $3,000 excluding any credits. Deductions are not a dollar for dollar reduction of your tax liability. If you are eligible for tax credits, credits are a dollar for dollar reduction from your tax liability. The good thing is if you use TurboTax you don’t have to make these calculations and you don’t have to figure out if you can take the standard deduction or itemize. TurboTax will figure it out for you.
