Watch out for the landmines

In theory, it sounds like an Easy Task to keep track of your Trips. In practice, the IRS can request ALL of your Business Data: Business Expense reports, Odometer readings recorded at the Mechanic, Traffic cams, Tolls, Fees, etc. If these documents do not match with your Mileage logs an IRS Fine can be 50% of your Yearly Income!

How To Track Your Mileage?

Some people track their mileages on paper. If you prefer this option, we have a Printable Mileage Log Template for you. Nonetheless, Traditional Mileage Log Excel or Google Sheets / Tracker Apps / Templates / Samples will not perform even the simplest check-ups in your mileage log such as checking whether your odometer readings are realistic or not.
