Greetings, Foolferlove, I can't say that I did this the right way or not but when I was moonlighting as a medical resident, I used to tote up the round-trip mileage from my base hospital to the hospital I went to moonlight at, since the base hospital was where I considered my principal place of employment to be - plus I actually went back to the base hospital for the next day's work. (I did not include round trip mileage between home and the base hospital.) Then I deducted this mileage as a business expense on Schedule C. Nobody came after me to say this was wrong. If I am at risk for an audit based on this mileage deduction, I'd love to know about it!
