Tax questions

March 10, 2000

Members of the Maryland Association of Certified Public Accountants are answering readers' tax questions through April 15. See below for how to submit a question.

When traveling to and from a medical appointment, what is the price per mile allowed as a deduction? I was under the impression that it was 10 cents per mile. Am I correct?

Yes, you are correct. If you choose not to deduct actual expenses, you may use a standard mileage rate of 10 cents per mile.
