I'm working on my taxes and need a little information. What type of things can I deduct? I know I can deduct so much per mile, but does that include everytime I have driven to the station last year? Also, what documentation do I need? Thanks a lot.

Anything that is FD related can be deducted as professional expenses; among them are:
mileage to and from alarms
mileage to and from training sessions
meals and lodging for training seminars
professional journals and textbooks for promotional study (Firehouse, Fire Engineering, IFSTA manuals etc.)
uniform cleaning, maintenance and purchases, if not provided by the Department.
turnout gear purchases, cleaning and maintenance if not provided by the Department.
Personal supplies purchased for use at the fire station.
Keep records of your milage and save your receipts!
Take care and be safe...Lt. Gonzo

Don't forget any clothes that may have had holes burned in or damaged while firefighting.
