I am Roger Chartier,
the author of this site.
I have a great interest in the Mileage Allowance as I use a lot of miles on my vehicle that are business related and I am a Sole Proprietor.
I find that because the van is paid for, I get about 21 MPG, and my costs to operate it are low, this causes the Mileage Allowance or Standard Mileage Rate for business to be worthwhile.
There are other methods to get a tax advantage for your car pickup truck or panel van as well.
I have discussed those on some other sites, such as the Actual Expense method of deduction.
If you want to know more about my work and myself go to www.RC123.com/roger.html for a greater bio and a list of websites that I have written.
