Re: Mileage Deduction for Temporary Job Assignment

It's my understanding that if this one-year job qualifies as a temporary job assignment, the whole time you are away is treated as one long business trip. If that's the case, then all of your mileage while away from home should be deductible. You can base this deduction on the standard mileage rate currently at 55.5 cents per mile, or on actual expenses incurred.
