Audit, Part 4
April 15, 2011
Continuing where we left off…
Another part of the audit prep involved figuring out all of the various visits to the RE, hospital, and acupuncturist during the year in question. When you have enough medical expenses to warrant a separate deduction (a mixed blessing, to be sure) you get to include mileage for each of your doctor visits.
When I’d prepared our taxes, I did a rough estimate. Reasonable, but rough.
Now, I needed a more careful record.
When I add it all up, it turns out to be even more than my rough estimate. The total is well over 3000 miles.
I drove over 3000 miles for infertility appointments in one year.
If I’d traveled that distance all at once, I could have gone to France instead.
Or, I could have gone to the North Pole. Maybe Santa Claus would have granted my wish for a baby.
Stay tuned for more audit “fun,” all leading up to an exciting bloggy event next week!
