I wish I had known about this when I was more involved in rescue laugh out loud
I was driving 42 miles to get to Petsmart.
(And I would also guess that adopting a shelter dog wouldn't be included would it? laugh out loud jk)

Thanks for the info, it's good to know that people are getting a tax break for doing such good work smile

Only .14 per mile? That's a lot lower than the IRS published rate for work related expenses at .51 per mile.

I know it's for charity related expenses...but still 14 cents is pretty darned low seeing as gas just hit 4.02 pg in my region yesterday.

Good info, Wat, thanks. big grin
