Standard mileage rates for your business travel also need to figure depreciation on your vehicle which is better. I mean should we take actual, should we take miles, when do we make this decision? Can we change that every year? Can we can we decide to go buy a new car and just because it’s a SUV we can take a hundred percent of it?
