TODAY’S TIP: Track business use of your personal vehicle. Record for each business trip, such as to the bank, the date, mileage, destination and purpose. This information can be kept in a notebook you carry in the vehicle so that you can have it ready for your business services provider at the end of the year to include as a tax deduction.
