What deductions? Are you talking about oil, gas, repairs, etc?


I don't deduct that way - I just deduct mileage and I've never heard anything about "lettering" of any sort in that regard.

I turn down big leaf jobs. Unless you have the right equipment, you can get overwhelmed if the property is large and has a lot of trees.
