    If the economy wasn't in the tank I'd do this.

    Its just too bad that I never actually see my superiors. So it would have to be over the phone. Conference call style.

    I bet your jobs haven't resulted in an 11 month old car with 43k miles on it

    That's field work for you. When they told me I'd be working from home, setting my own hours and getting paid 30% more than my previous job I jumped at the chance. I guess money really doesn't buy happiness. Right now I just need something else, preferably someplace else. Job hunting sucks in a good economy. It sucks even more in a bad economy AND not being local.

    Umm, you're supposed to get mileage or a company car with a gasoline card if you are doing field work. You could try bringing it up with them since you've been there almost a year.

    Also, I hope you itemized your taxes. That car expense is a massive write off. Also meals if you were away from your home office more than 4 hours at a time. Detailed records are required, but not necesarily receipts. Mileage and meal log books have occasionally been generated and post dated... Even if you did not itemize for last year you still can file an amended return to go for the business deductions. Don't forget apportioning home rent/mortgage for the space used for your home office, cell phone expenses, home computer/laptop, tools clothes, etc. Real companies usually provide all of the above but if your's doesn;t they are all legitimate business expenses. To reap the most up front look at expensing tools, computers in the first yuear of service vs depreciating them..

    PS I killed a car driving to an inside job one year. 90 miles a day. I'll never do that again. My uncle did it for 20 years. He died poor shortly after retiring, all his money went to buy cars and gasoline.

    I had no idea I could get a tax break for all of this. That makes me even more depressed.

    I do get mileage, but its just not enough to justify destroying this car. The extra money helps, but at this rate the car will be in a graveyard someplace and I'll still owe 10k or more.

    Today was a horrible day, I'm so close to quitting its scary. I am looking hard, but as I said before, no one hires out of town applicants. And Fargo isn't exactly a tech hot spot.
