Question

If I use the actual expense method, why does the total allowable deduction shown on the Auto Worksheet not match the amount of car/truck expense displayed on the applicable form or schedule?

Answer

When you use the actual expense method, vehicle rent and depreciation are presented in their respective expense fields, and the remaining auto expenses are shown in the car/truck expense field on the applicable form or schedule.
