Tax Tip: Medical mileage is deductible.

Keep track of your mileage going to and from the Doctor's office and the pharmacy when you go to fill your prescriptions. You can use this mileage as a deduction if you itemize on your tax return. Keeping a small calendar in your glove box is a convenient way to jot down your medical mileage.
