I want to use the standard mileage rate. What steps do I follow to enter this information?


Enter all auto expenses on the Vehicle/Listed tab of the asset. To use the standard mileage rate, click the Standard mileage option in the Additional 1040 vehicle information section. 

Note: By default, UltraTax/1040 optimizes between using the standard mileage rate or the actual costs when determining vehicle costs for current-year vehicles.
