    mileage compensation Arkansas

    I am a copier technician and use my own car for service calls. I live in city B and work in city A. The distance to drive to work (city B to City A) is 29 miles. Sometimes I am dispatched from my home for service calls instead of driving to city A to the office. For example: City C has several clients we service and is about 30 miles from my house. The reason I am dispatched from home is that City C is 50 miles from city A were the office is located. I am being told that my mileage from my house (in city B) to city C will not be compensated but my mileage compensation will start on my first call in city C. My question is: Is this legal or is there something I can use to have them pay me for this mileage?

    However, keep meticulous records of your business-related mileage (not the commute), as (depending on your AGI) you may be able to deduct them on your 1040 if you itemize. See a tax preparer for more information.

    It is legal. In your state mileage never has to be reimbursed and time spent commuting to and from work would be taxable if it were paid.
