MILEAGE RATES ARE DOWN If you use your car for business, for medical travel, moving, or for charitable purposes, you can deduct the cost from your taxes. The easiest way is to use the mileage rate set by the Internal Revenue Service, rather than keep receipts to substantiate costs such as gasoline and oil For 2014, the mileage rate for business travel is 56 cents a mile (down slightly from last year; so is the price of gas). A worker who is reimbursed under an "accountable" plan won't be taxed on the reimbursement but can't deduct the expense. The rate for medical or moving reasons is 23.5 cents a mile. The rate for charitable purposes remains 14 cents. That low rate is fixed by Congress and the IRS cannot change it. In addition, you can deduct tolls and parking. It's important to keep good records of where you go and for what purpose. Notes on a calendar or datebook can be adequate documentation. What's deductible, what's not? We've got the answer to your tax questions at John A. Kimmel, CPA Bec uette & Kimmel Accountancy Corporation 15A " Main St., Quincy 283-0680 Almanor West Grill Chef Mike Wilhelmson, who is co-owner of Lakeside Caf6 and Collectibles in Hamilton Branch, is also taking over the Almanor West Grill inside the Almanor West Golf Course clubhouse.
