I think so. as you know, personal commuting costs are not tax deductible .normal commuting costs you incur traveling from your home to a workplace and back, such as the cost of gasoline, buses, trains or other forms of public transportation, are not tax deductible. it does not matter how far you are from a workplace or if you work during the commute, such as on a train or bus; according to the IRS, transportation costs associated with traveling from one workplace to another while you are away from home are tax deductible. For instance, if you take a flight from one job to a different job on the other side of town, the cost would be deductible. The IRS also states that if you have a home office that is your primary workplace, the cost of traveling to other locations associated with your employment is tax deductible. In addition, the cost of commuting to a temporary workplace that is outside the metro area where you live and work is tax deductible.
