Gas receipts for tax purposes?

For tax purposes do the gas receipts need to show the amount of gallons.

keep up with mileage driven not gas purchased on your truck. as far as mower gas that's a different story since it's not covered under mileage.

For mower gas, you need to keep track of gallons for credit for tax on fuels (Form 4136). You can deduct the federal taxes on fuel.

Truck gas is deductible as long as your not using standard mileage.

Unless you take expenses rather than the mileage. I take mileage.

yeah you can take the expenses you spent on gas but you come out better claiming the mileage. at least in my experience. it's best to take mileage on the truck and use expenses on mower gas rather than using expenses for all of it.
