For only the second time ever I am able to deduct medical expenses for 2007 because of health problems of my wife. I told myself at the beginning of the year to keep track of my mileage but of course did not. I was wondering if there is an average of what is claimed for this deduction? I know the rate is 20 cents/mile this year. I'm also thinking it might be better to not claim any instead of just guessing because I like to be as accurate as possible. Any advice?
