Question: I am an independent contractor architect. I have an office set up in my house where I check email each morning, and work on an occasional project. Virtually every workday, I drive to the office of my “client.” Can I deduct this mileage, or is it considered commuting? My client is a long term client that I have worked with for 6-7 years. Our working relationship may blur the lines between an independent contractor and an employee relationship.
