    u do not get a ‘refund’ for your expenses.

    u want to visit library for books on taxes
    of small businesses.

    the expenses of business are written off against
    your income to find net profits.
    net profits are taxed.

    Visit IRS.gov for proper paper work.
    visit your state income tax site also.

    You keep a mileage log. You do not get refunded. File a schedule C and SE.

    You need to file your regular Income Tax Return. If you elect to file income for your LLC as a sole proprietor, you report your income and offset it with expenses on gas, tools and other business expenses on Form 1040 Schedule C. If you elect to file as Corporation or Partnership you need to file business income tax return, where you take the deduct all your business expenses from gross revenue.

    First, keep meticulous records of your mileage and other expenses. Also document any payments use receive. When you do your tax return, you will file Schedule C and claim these expenses.

    If you have not paid taxes on your own, using Form 1040-ES, then you will owe unless you qualify for credits like the Earned Income Credit. The best outcome for you may be to get a modest refund, regardless of your expenses.

    As you will NOT get any direct REFUND amount just for your gas expenses for this purpose and time in your life.

    You don’t get a refund of your gas expenses. If you kept the required log of all of your miles on that vehicle, you can deduct miles you drove for business, either a flat rate per business mile or else a % of actual expenses. For federal this will go on schedule C.

    you won’t get any refund for your gas from IRS regardless of any form you file
    if you are self employed, you will report that income on Sch C as a sole proprietor, you can claim the vehicle expenses you can substantiate with a current log of your business miles(commuting is NOT deductible)
    it is obvious you do not understand an LLC, that is a state designation, it is not recognized by IRS
    your business is either sole proprietor, a Corporation or a Partnership
    you are not an employee of yourself, it is obvious you are not a partnership and if you have a corporation you can be paid by the corporation as an employee which will involve considerably more than you seem to be aware or
