Commuter Mileage Deduction for Employee?

Hi everyone and Tax Gurus...

I am not self employed, I work for a great company 58.33 miles one way from home. My commute to the office daily is 116.66 miles. As just being an employee with a large commute, can I claim some of this on my 2010 tax return?

Just driving to and from work I drive 30,708 miles a year! I would love to be able to either claim some gas or actual mileage. What are my options? Thanks you so very much in advance for any help provided.

Have a great day!

" As just being an employee with a large commute, can I claim some of this on my 2010 tax return?" Sorry, No; in general, commuting to and from work is a nondeductible personal expense no matter how far you drive. As you can see, these costs are your personal commuting expenses. You cannot deduct commuting expenses no matter how far your home is from your regular place of work. There are exceptions, however, when you, as an employee, are required to travel outside your metropolitan area on a temporary basis.
