I'll tell you how I do it. If I am, say, downtown shopping and get a call to show a property, I will immediately write down (in a book I keep in the car) my beginning mileage from that location. When I arrive home (after my showing), I write down the ending mileage. In a separate column, I write down the total business mileage for that particular day.I do this every day. At the end of the month, I total the monthly mileage and put it in Quicken. At the end of the year, I note my beginning year mileage and year-end mileage and subtract the latter from the former. That gives me the total mileage for the year. From that figure, I deduct all 12 months of business mileage, and that leaves me with the personal mileage, so I can see what % of time I use the car for business. Although, at this time, I do not depreciate the vehicle. I simply use the business mileage for a tax deduction.elizabeth
