Temporary Work Location - Driving & Parking

I live (permanent residence) 30 miles from my permanent work location. My employer has placed me at a temporary work location (3 months) 50 miles from my permanent residence. I drive past my permanent work location to get to my temporary location. I have tried to expense 40 miles a day (to and from back to office) and parking. They are denying the driving because i did not stop at the office first. They also rejected the parking saying that is my expense at the new location. They are claiming this is how the IRS law works and they will not reimburse me.
Questions are -
1. Are they correct and i must stop into the office first. (office opens at 7:30 new location i start at 6am).
2. If i am entitled to reimbursement can someone tell me which IRS tax section so i can discuss with the office.

Sorry just frustrating i want to be reimbursed for my driving minimum. The above situation was last summer, i am being sent back this summer again. The temporary location is all summer 7 days a week 10-12 hours a day. my typical work is 5 days a week 45 hours. I am salaried and it just sucks.

They are incorrect first, since you have one main regular work location away from your permanent home I mean at another location and you commute to the temporary work location in the same trade / business, you can deduct the expenses of the daily round-trip transportation between your home and the temporary location, regardless of distance. If your employment at a work location is realistically expected to last and does in fact last for 1 year or less, so, aslongas you must commute to a temporary work location from your home, the IRS considers such expenses deductible. Say, you, as an employee, are sent to an alternate business location to work for a limited period of time or you driving directly from home to meet with a client at an alternate location, such as a job site away from the main office, or etc

they are correct :second, as they said, also, Travel to and from a temporary workplace is business travel,. not ordinary commuting. That means that you can claim expenses for business travel between both permanent and temporary workplaces.

so as said, you satisfy thefirst requirement:since you have one main regular work location away from your permanent home I mean at another location and you commute to the temporary work location in the same trade / business, you can deduct the expenses of the daily round-trip transportation between your home and the temporary location

I am salaried and it just sucks.=====>>> Temporary assignment vs. indefinite assignment
IRS Publication 463 (Page 14) When Are Transportation Expenses Deductible? Most employees and self-employed persons can use this chart. (Do not use this chart if your home is your principal place of business. See Office in the home.)
