You can't deduct the miles you drive from home to your first business-related stop unless you have a qualified office in the home. Generally speaking, your first and last trips are your commute and the rest are deductible business miles.

If you maintain an office at home, all your miles are typically deductible from your "office" to any place business related.

If your work is mainly from somewhere other than your home, you can't deduct the miles you drive from home to that location. They are commuting miles and therefore, not deductible. Of course, you can deduct driving costs from your business location to the bank, a client's office, etc.
