I have been working through Turbo Tax and It's Deductible and they both are asking me for mileage driven for charitable purposes. I have a question regarding this.I volunteer quite a bit in various things at our church. I serve on several committees and also serve as sound engineer for worship services. I have never considered deducting the mileage driven for these purposes, but now I am wondering.In my mind, I guess I wouldn't have a problem with deducting the mileage driven for meetings in which I wouldn't normally be at the church, but I wanted to get your opinion about the Sunday worship services. Even if I wasn't the sound engineer, I would be there in the pews each Sunday instead of in the sound booth. On the other hand, I am volunteering my services for a charitable organization.Also, if these miles are legally/ethically deductible, what kind of documentation should I be keeping?
