Please clarify. You are asking from TT Business. This is not used to prepare Schedule C.

I am an independent contractor that will be filling out a schedule C.  I am doing contract work for a business.  The business pays me for my contract work and reimburses my mileage. All of this income is reported on my 1099 which I will be using for my schedule C. Can I deduct mileage as a business expense even though I receive income for that mileage.

Of course ... you will deduct all qualified expenses on the Sch C and the reimbursement  is considered income ... they balance each other off naturally.

@lwill1721   We just want to make sure you are using the right Turbo Tax program for your return.  On your post you indicated the separate Business program which does not do a personal return and doesn't have schedule C.  You need to be using either the Desktop Home & Business program or the Online Self Employed version.

If the reimbursement is part of your taxable income, you can take whatever deductions you would be allowed against that income, using schedule C or form 2106 depending on the work you do.  You don't have to make any special adjustments.
