Schedule C for auto expenses with W-2 income only

I have 2 new clients, both are W-2 employees but expenses mileage on a Schedule C. I have never seen this and feel it's not correct. Any opinions

It ain't correct -------- that's why you have never seen it.

Thank you. Been doing this for a long time and questioned my knowledge. I had two separate clients file their 2019 that way.

They must be using the same barber or their old tax preparer used that barber.

Just tell them that you prepare returns correctly to keep your clients and yourself out of trouble. If they wish you to work with them, they must agree to those terms. If they don't agree that should be all you need to know about whether you want them as clients.

Thank you. That's the only way I do business and I have awesome clients. It just perplexed me because I saw this in 2 days with 2 different (new) clients. For a moment I thought maybe I missed something somewhere.

did they both come from the same preparer? Is that preparer no longer in business anymore?

That would actually make sense. One came from an established EA the other self prepared.
