Yes but make sure to keep very accurate records. Don't forget that so called commuting miles (Home to work & back) are usually not deductible.

If you already itemize and have enough expenses. The first 2% of your agi is not deductible. Your itemized expenses must be more than your standard deduction.

Use Form 2106 to calculate your deduction then transfer that number to the miscellaneous deduction section on Form 1040 Schedule A. That much mileage will generate a deduction of $16,650 minus 2% of your adjusted gross income. That is more than the standard deduction amount so gather up any other itemized deductions you have and add them in.

IF you itemize, and IF your employer doesn't pay mileage, and IF you kept a log of the miles, and IF your unreimbursed expenses are more than 2.5% of your AGI, sure.
Positive: 10 %
