If you need to track your mileage for work, here’s an easy tool for you

Many small business owners and consultants spend time on the road in their personal vehicles traveling to clients and work sites.  We know those miles need to be tracked for tax purposes (money back from the IRS is a good thing), but it’s often a pain to do.  That’s where the TripBook comes into play.

Here’s the idea: you don’t want to carry a log book around in the car just for tracking your mileage.  What if you forget to write it down, or need to make extra notes?  You either open your laptop right then and try to keep track of it all, or you try to remember to bring your log book into the office and back to the car.  We all know what a pain it is to track these things, and in the end we ask ourselves if it’s really worth the few cents we get back for it.

The answer is “Yes!”  So here’s what you do.  Plug the TripBook into your cigarette lighter when you start your trip.  Take it out when you’re done.  Plug the TripBook into your computer’s USB port and review your trip.  It takes care of reports and tracking so you don’t have to worry about it.

TripBook can also be used to keep track of employees so they don’t have to maintain separate travel records, which minimizes accounting problems.
