    My car is used a lot for business. Of course I can then write off a portion of the fuel and maintenance on my ICE vehicle. Anyone talk to an accountant about claiming the cost of the power to charge our cars?
    in addition what about the maintenance plan? Seems to me we could claim a portion of that as well.
    Thoughts?

    Not necessarily. If you use a car exclusively for business, you can deduct actual cost, including depreciation, repairs, fuel, etc. The 55.5 cents/mile rate is if you use a personal car for business purposes.
