Driving to see clients

June --

My wife started working as a contract employee doing work for Area Agency on Aging. She works directly with clients to set up services for them requiring her to drive out of town weekly. Can we deduct the business portion of the purchase of an automobile for her to drive to see her clients.

Dear Gary,

Apologies for this late response. Your email was lost in the virtual forest. For an answer, read tip # 2 in
Designers Dozen: Tax Saving Tips for the Graphic Artist and also Auto Expense: From one work location to another .

They tell you what is business transportation and which isn't.

Then read
Two Ways to Calculate Auto Expense on my website which will explain whether you can deduct the cost of your car.

Best regards,
June Walker
