Just got my taxes for 04 filed and my first year was last year. Anyway, ended up putting more into my company than I made in 3 months so got a decent amount coming to me. She said about my work vehicle though, that she could only give me writeoff on mileage I put on it for work purposes, not maintenance I had done to it in those 3 months since my startup. Does this sound correct? I mean you can only have one or the other, you can't writeoff mileage and maintenance costs? She is the tax lady and looked as if she has probably been doing it for some time now. Anyway she gave a great deal, $125 to do my taxes and $15 to electronically file them for me. I had everything organized for her though on paper and it only took her about 25 minutes to put it all in the computer and out came the numbers.
