How do I deal with an audit regarding mileage vs actual vehicle Expenses? 1 Answers as of November 24, 2010
I am being audited by the IRS for tax years 2008 and 2009. I am self employed as a pilot car operator. I have always claimed mileage instead of actual expenses, as I run up to 80,000 miles per year with my work using my pickup truck. They are now informing me that since my pay is based on the mileage ran with the commercial truck while escorting him, that I am NOT allowed to claim mileage on my vehicle, but must claim actual expenses. I have not found this stipulation anywhere in any IRS publications. Can you shed any light on this. I have been given a deadline to furnish information showing actual truck expenses.
