Ahhh…getting close to tax time again. Here’s a smart tip from the H&R Block website:

“Secret Deduction in Volunteer Work
Summertime is often a time for increased volunteer activities. Do you drive for Meals on Wheels? Take church youth on field trips? Drive to the location of a Habitat for Humanity house you’re helping to construct? Keep track of all your volunteer mileage – 14 cents for every mile is deductible as a charitable contribution. To make your record keeping easier, stop by participating H&R Block offices for a free mileage record book.”
