Post 4. Can I claim on mileage to visit branch office

My company wants me to visit a branch office twice a week. That office is located exactly at the same distance from my home as my main office. They said that I cannot claim mileage when I travel to the branch office. Can I claim the expense in my tax returns?

“They said that I cannot claim mileage when I travel to the branch office. Can I claim the expense in my tax returns?===============> Travel from home to work, a branch office,also known as commuting, is generally not a tax-deductible expense. This applies no matter what type of transportation that you use to commute, even if you commute by train so that you may work while commuting. However, there are some types of employee local travel that are fully deductible on your taxes. For example, even small business owners can deduct only business mileage for travel away from their primary place of business, NOT from their homes; travel between home and the office is not deductible, but it generally is when traveling from that office to client sites.
