Volunteer Mileage Reimbursement
Volunteer drivers may exclude mileage reimbursement payments from their income only to the extent they would be able to deduct the expense as a charitable contribution.
They may exclude one of these amounts for each mile driven, including unreimbursed miles:
- Optional, standard mileage rate for charitable activities of 14 cents per mile.
- Actual vehicle expenses, such as gas and oil, directly related to the charitable purpose
Note: Beginning with tax year 2021, you may be able to subtract reimbursements exceeding 14 cents per mile on your Minnesota income tax return.
