I have a red velvet cupcake order of 50 with rainbow color frosting to be delivered 30 miles from my home... all boxed and no setup. How much do you think should I charge? how much would you normally charge per mile?
Not sure if this helps but I charge $1.00 a cupcake and 30 cents a mile for delivery...
The IRS says you can charge up to 50 cent per mile.
The IRS can't tell you what you can charge. You can charge any amount you want. Maybe you're thinking of how much the IRS will let you deduct as a business expense when traveling for work. But you can charge $1,000 per mile if you want to and can find a customer willing to pay it.
That was what i was referring to. When you deliver a cake you are essentially traveling for work.
<-- my charges . Can't tell you what your costs are! $2.75 per cupcake and $1.25 BOTH ways for delivery, $50 minimum on delivery.
Thanks myslady, artscallion and leah_s! If it was during the work week...it would have been no problem as I would be lugging it with me to work on the train and deliver it to the office... just that she needs it on a weekend and by that I have to bother my husband to drive me 30 miles to meet my friend.
Leah_s... you got me nailed on the amount I calculated for her before I even read your comment
