    What do you put for "Destination" in your mileage log?

    The IRS rules technically require a "Destination" for each line of the mileage log. I record my odometer when I start driving (go into driver mode) and when I stop (go out of driver mode). Usually I'm at home both times. What do you guys put for "Destination" in your mileage log?

    As an Uber driver, I’m putting a ton of miles on my car and I need to claim as many as I can on my taxes.

    Should Uber just do us a favor and classify us as non-profit?

    For anyone who's driving in a market with less than $1/mile rates (here's lookin' at you, Detroit!), we need to be honest with ourselves and accept the fact that we're just driving at a loss. If you look at it, we're really not much different than your local not-for-profit, charitable...

    Just out of curiosity...

    I am just wondering if any of you out there would not mind sharing what is the average mileage per every thousand dollars you made being claimed to the IRS? So the total amount of miles to be deducted would be divided by a single digit of a thousand. For example: Claiming 23,000 miles Made...
