Smile Mileage Calculations

Hello Experts,

My wife and I are filing MFJ. Each of us has a job. We only own one car. In the morning, I will drop her on her work (that's around 15 miles from the house), then I will drive to my work which is around 35 miles from her work.

Will the IRS consider my mileage from my wife's work to my work as allowable car expense?

Thank you so much

Deducting mileage for your commute is not allowed by the IRS; the IRS mileage allowance can include virtually all your commuting mileage expense, allowing you to take a mileage deduction for the miles you log from your home to the office or other place of business, if you are a small business owner or self-employed person, and You have two offices or work locations: one outside the home (Office #1) and one inside the home (Office #2).
