I'm sure this is a dumb question..mileage

Paranoia can be a good thing.

For me, I have occasionally found myself in a situation that required hard braking, temporarily exceeding the speed limit, or driving more than 12 hours in a day, etc. All of these things have been done safely, but perhaps a 22-year old fresh out of school with limited driving experience who works for my insurance company might not agree. If you don't mind your movements being tracked, that's your decision. I get that a 20-something doesn't always understand the value of privacy; I'm a little surprised when someone who has lived long enough to know better does not.

Does starting mileage have to be from Jan 1st? Say I'm hust now starting to track my shop's, can i just use the current mileage as a starting point?
Of course. But it's to your benefit to figure out what it was January 1. Perhaps you have a record somewhere -- if you've had an oil change or any ordinary maintenance done, the work order should show the mileage at that time. You can also backtrack from your shop records your mileage from Jan 1 to today.
I just use an educated guess... Maybe that's right, maybe that's wrong, but that's what I do.

Seriously, nobody cares that you're offended.
Of course--that is if you weren't working as a MS at the beginning of the year. Assuming you've just started or just decided to start keeping track of your miles, that's ok, but remember to make a note to yourself on whatever method you choose to use to keep track of your miles that you began work as a MS on whatever date it is. If you started working as a MS January 1, I would suggest to just forget those miles. It's hard to re-create what was, and even harder to convince the IRS the what was is.
