#Good news! The IRS has extended the tax deadline to April 18th! As long as you submit your federal return by midnight on 4/18/2018, you won't be considered a late filer for your federal return. Direct debit tax payments that are submitted with your federal return (or on the IRS website) by 4/18 are also considered timely filed ×

Do I have to keep records of my mileage to claim this deduction?

If you used your vehicle while volunteering for a charity, you may be able to deduct the number of miles you drove for charity purposes. You’re allowed a charitable deduction of 14 cents per mile.

You must keep a reliable, written record of the number of miles driven. Some things your records should show are:

  1. The name of the organization you volunteered for.
  2. The date you used your car for charity purposes.
  3. Starting and ending miles driven.
