I was just curious what the proper way to write off mileage and meals for tax purposes. I realize the advice I get here is just that, advice. Since we drive to a portrait session on occasion, whats the best way to record the mileage? Just the starting odometer number and ending? Or do you need to record each stage of the trip? Like from house to client, from client to resteraunt, from resteraunt to client 2, then home again? And a 2nd question. Last saturday we had time to kill between portraits, so we went to a chinease buffet. Am I able to write this off? It was just myself and assistant. We talked about work somewhat but just general stuff.
