One last thing,

I'm claiming the actual expense method...so would all expenses for this vehicle be deducted at a 100% (gas, insurance, repairs etc.) this is a new auto purchase in 2012.

Deprecation-since the auto is used a 100% for business would I be entitled to deducted the entire purchase price ($30,000) or will it still be limited to the limitation amount ($11,160)?

I'm trying to see over all for my "business and family" if its worth having a second auto with a monthly note. Thanks!

My question-

How and/or can I write of all expenses for this auto at a %100?

Thanks Tom!
