The 2012 IRS mileage deduction or IRS mileage allowance for medical purposes is set by the Internal Revenue Service. What is the mileage rate for 2012?
It may not seem like much but the $0.23.5 (twenty-three and a half cents per mile) can add up.
If you drive to a medical treatment facility that is not near your home, let's say 100 miles away and back (200 miles) once a week you can deduct $47.00 each of those days.
Do that for 3 months (13 weeks) and you can deduct $601.00.
