For a Master's Program, a 6 week rural placement is required. Use of our own vehicles are required. Where can I claim a) gas mileage to/from placement b) lost wages?
I can only see that you can claim gas mileage as a business expense. While it is not a business expense it is a requirement for school - meaning you cannot pass the program without this placement. There is no public transportation that goes to these locations and so a personal vehicle is required.
There are 5 placements (each 6 weeks in length) required for the program. These placements required 40 hours per week of time, reducing my availability for work. How/where can I claim these lost wages?
