A business cannot deduct personal auto expense

Again today a business owner asked me to deduct his auto mileage expense on his business tax return. That’s not how it works! A partnership, S-Corp or C-Corp generally can not deduct the cost of personal auto expense.

There are workarounds but we need to discuss and actually set it up.

I covered the topic in a broad sense in this popular blog post: “Unreimbursed partnership expenses revisited”
