Question
Can I use car towing service charges as a write off?
- Anonymous
Answer
Yes, if you tow cars from your business's property, it's tax deductible. Also, as long as you use your car for business, you'll also be able to deduct part of the expense if you use a car towing service like AAA. This car expense is included with your other car expenses like insurance and maintenance to get the maximum deduction.
