the only way you would get any money back from what you paid out in mileage would be a reimbursable plan with your employer
if you were able to use Sch A and itemize and claim $500 it reduced your income tax liability and that is all the benefit you derive in claiming it
Pascal the Gambler:
The employer would reimburse you. The IRS does not reimburse you for anything. They are not getting money back from their mileage. They could have had more withheld, they could have credits you don't have, it could be 1000 things.
Judy:
You don't get reimbursed for it. You get a deduction if your miles qualify, which means you get a small portions of the amount taken off your taxes. But what specifically were those miles for? Home to work and back for temporary assignments, or travel during the workday from site to site? Please post again with more detail. Who did your taxes? Do you get on a W-2 or a 1099-misc?

You might as well forget it for the past year. You should be submitting it to your employer on a weekly or bi-weekly basis, as often as you are paid. NOT all at once at the end of the year and not to the IRS or anyone else. Submit your record showing your daily mileage. It will either be reimbursed from petty cash or will be included on your next paycheck.
Spock (rhp):
US income taxes. an employee's mileage from home to the first workplace of the day is not deductible. neither is the employee's return mileage. An independent contractor [form 1099, not W-2] operates under the same rules.

If you qualify for any mileage deduction due to employment, it is taken on Schedule A [itemized deductions] which means you get no deduction until you exceed the minimum threshold for all itemized deductions for your filing status. see instructions for details, and the ordinary case for anyone who is not a homeowner is no deduction.

reimbursements are from the employer, not the government [IRS]. if you bargained for one or were awarded one.

we have no idea what these other people have claimed in their tax filing — you are welcome to ask them how they did that, since it appears you are not eligible. [do not be surprised if what they say is not supported by the law — America is full of tax cheats.]

Ricki:
There's no deduction for the distance you drive to work.
StephenWeinstein:
You do not get reimbursement from the IRS or from taxes.

If the company for which you worked wishes, they may decide to reimburse you. If they don't reimburse you, then you don't get reimbursed. There is no automatic reimbursement that you are guaranteed to get. You don't get any reimbursement unless you worked for a company that reimburses.

If getting a reimbursement was important to you, then you should have gotten the company to agree before you took the temporary job assignment.

Max Hoopla:
Ask your employer for it.
