Your entering the vehicle in the right place. With the standard mileage deduction, the cost of the vehicle isn't relevant.
Unless you elect to use actual expenses for the vehicle, you don't enter the cost of the vehicle. If you answer yes to the question "Do you want to see if your actual business expenses give you a bigger deduction?" you'll enter the purchase price in that interview.
I was looking for the same thing. If you purchase a work truck you can use the purchase of the truck and have as an asset using the Section 179 to write it off one time. In TurboTax on the assets it says don't put vehicles there. So where do you put it?
Thanks that is what I did and there is not place for purchase of it that I can find.
But if you put actual expenses and not miles you can put it there. But it will not let
you take miles and the cost. Which is weird.
Appreciate the help.
