I'm trying to find out if this information is right. I'm trying to deduct my gas for work which I got a 1099 MISC. So I can get the taxes for it. I drove 60 miles around trip for 147 days which comes to 8820 miles for 2012. I don't understand what the Miles driven for job? means on TurboTax. Does that mean I need to divided my around trip to 8820 by half to 4410? I have a picture to show it. Got an extension and needs to be done by the 15 of this month.
