Legal Answers
2 Questions Answered

Q. Can I ask for a deposit back when landlord breaks a leasing contract and I move out earlier than the termination date?
A: You can always ask. Request the return of the deposit in writing and send the request by certified mail. This way you have proof you made the request. Please note the the deposit is usually used make sure the property is left is suitable condition and many landlords find reasons to keep the deposit by stating that cleaning and repairs were required. If you want to attempt get the deposit back, and the property was left in good condition, then you may have to take your landlord to small claims court.
Q. If I'm required to drive for my job 5-10 miles per day - between facilities, does my emp have to pay me mileage?
A: Your employer is not required to pay you mileage. However, when you drive your personal vehicle as a part of your job, you may claim your mileage and/or wear and maintenance for your personal vehicle as an unreimbursed business expense on your tax return. The easiest way is to keep track of mileage is with a log that notes the date, mileage and reason for the trip. Then you multiply the mileage by the IRS standard business mileage rate. In 2014 this rate was 56 cents and the 2015 rate is 57.5 cents.
