Tri-Star doesn't give you any guidance on this?

How will you be paid? Are you an employee or an independent contractor?

Do keep track of mileage -- get a log. Will you go to an office? Will you have a home office? Makes a difference. I have no office; when I use my car for business I record my mileage from my first business stop to my last business stop.

Meal expenses are deductible only if your trip is overnight or long enough that you need to stop for sleep or rest to properly perform your duties.
