As we all know, it’s that dreaded time of the year-Tax time! In honor of tax season, I have a new series called “Ask An Accountant”. Send in your tax questions and each week to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will post the question and give an answer from an experienced accountant.
Question:I am a social worker and my job requires my personal car and cell phone for work use. I track my mileage and keep all gas receipts; can I claim my car (gas and maintenancen) and my cell phone on my taxes?
2. Can I deduct the use of a cellphone used for work.
