Kindly remember the ONLY WAY experts receive any credit at all for spending time with customers is if you click on OK, GOOD or EXCELLENT SERVICE even though you have made a deposit or are a subscription customer. YOU MUST COMPLETE THE RATING FOR THE EXPERT TO RECEIVE ANY CREDIT, if not the site keeps your money on deposit.
Also remember, sometimes the law does not support what we want it to support, but that is not the fault of the person answering the question, so please be courteous.
Hi, thanks for your answer and I'd be happy to rate you but I guess I didn't state my question clearly. Assuming I can prove my miles since I drive the same route everyday and the route is specified in a Job Order and Job Description by the courier company I drive for (and who 'leases' me and mu vehicle) in my job order and the miles are obvious by punching the cities that I am paid to drive to on my manifest in a map program - or - by repair receipts like you mentioned THEN does the Bankruptcy court use the standard business mileage deduction specified by the IRS? I was told they don't allow that standard 56.5 cents per mile even if you prove your miles - they ONLY will take provable receipted actual vehicle expenses and NOT mileage deductions (like the IRS allows). That was the question but I am not sure I made myself clear so thank you for your answer - we are consulting another attorney instead next week so I'll be asking him.
