April 15th, tax day, looms closer and closer. If you’re self-employed, or have a side-gig, such as making deliveries or driving for Uber, you might want to check if you can deduct vehicle expenses from your Self-Employed taxes.
To do this, you first calculate how many miles you drove all year. Then you choose between taking the standard rate, or the actual expenses you incurred with your car. To do this, figure the percentage that was personal driving, and how much was for business. Say you drove 100 miles a week, and 40% was for business. That’s the percentage of car expenses you can deduct. Keep in mind, driving to your work place is commuting, so that’s not deductible, but driving to do business banking or buy supplies is deductible.
The film, Repo Man, is a cult classic. Otto, a young punk rocker played by Emilio Estevez becomes a repo man.

But it’s not as quirky and outer worldly as the movie may have led you to believe.
Fact: In most states, repossession is legal after your first default.
