Create a federal income tax deduction for bicycle mileage
This petition had 1,668 supporters
The U.S. federal tax code permits taxpayers to take a deduction for each mile driven in a car for work related purposes (described here).
Let's provide the same deduction (at a lower rate) for people who ride bicycles for work related purposes.
Creating this bicycle mileage tax deduction would promote bicycle commuting, which would mean:
- fewer cars on the road;
- less traffic;
- less pollution; and
- healthier workers.
Makes sense to me.
