Ask A CPA - Depreciation

Can Corporations Use The Standard Mileage Rate Method In Calculating Auto Depreciation?

No. The use of the standard mileage method is limited to a self-employed individual or an employee who operates an automobile for business purposes. Corporations would not qualify. Partners in a partnership would qualify because they are considered self-employed.
