Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, Broker, Tacoma Washington - Yes, I track miles driven and driving time for tracking my time and for income tax reasons.  Even if I can't expense time and mileage to a client, I want to know how much of each I dedicate to a project.  The IRS likes the fact that I'm such a persistent note taker.
