Travel for Volunteer Work

Q.   As full timers, we travel from our home state in TX to various locals around the US doing volunteer work. Even though RVers are classified us as itinerants, it would seem we should be allowed some deduction for traveling from one site to another, which oftentimes is a considerable distance. Can we count the non-vacation aspects of the travel as a deductible expense?

A.  Your point is well taken, and as much as I would like to say to go for it, I doubt under examination if it would be justified. Once at the site, driving errands or people around on behalf of the charitable organization would classify as charitable travel, and you should keep track of these miles. If I learn otherwise, I will certainly post an update on this site. Thanks for all your good efforts and keep up the good work!
