This year, I rang up 15,270 work related miles on my car. At $0.56.5 per mile, I have a nice $8,550 deduction on my income taxes this year. And this year is lower than last year, as I've been pretty slow in the work department the past few months. I can't wait for the spring thaw to begin, so the housing market picks back up again. This winter has been fucking brutal. And my car is in serious need of some TLC.
