Perfect records? REALLY?


So you think you do a pretty good job of record keeping for your trucking or logistics business? Or you know you don't do a great job of it.


We prepare the returns for a husband and wife team in South Dakota, and they swear they've captured all of their expenses. Most drivers and/or spouses are not that confident.


One of the fun and very rewarding parts of our work here at eTruckerTax is reconstructing records for drivers.


As you might imagine, the IRS wants you to maintain records for the deductions you are claiming on your tax returns, especially business deductions. Certainly a reasonable request.


And if you review virtually any IRS Publication or set of instructions, it will tell you exactly what is "required" in order to take any given deduction.

We Need Your Help!


Hopefully you already know that all of us here at eTruckerTax love and appreciate YOU - the men and women that make up "America's Driving Force"!


Our number one goal, day in and day out is to leave a LOT more of your hard-earned money in your pocket, and less in Uncle Sam's.


We are very grateful for the privilege of assisting a good number of drivers, along with the many other professionals that it takes to keep the system running smoothly - fleet managers, brokers and agents, pilot and escort operators, load planners - the list goes on and on.


As grateful as we are for the many friends and clients that we already help with tax prep, tax-cutting strategies and fixing IRS problems, we are barely scratching the surface of the total number of drivers and support personnel that we would LOVE to assist.


A Second Business?


Do you have a second business that you could manage from the road? If not, have you at least given it some serious thought?


I mean, think about it - what about the ton of free time you have while motoring from Chicago to Phoenix twice a week?


Through the miracle of modern technology, just about all you need for a lot of businesses is a cell phone and a lap top.


Is there anything you enjoy working with or working on in your spare time?


What service or benefit can you offer to your fellow drivers or transportation professionals that they already need, or would benefit from?

The Phone Call 


Several men were sitting in the locker room after a game of golf when a cell phone on the bench rang. One of them picked it up: "Hello?"

"Honey? It's me. I'm at the mall, and I found that fabulous mink coat for only $2,500. Could I buy it?"

"Of course," the man said. "Is that all?"

"Well, I stopped by the Mercedes dealership, and the guy there
offered a great deal on this year's model-only $60,000! What do you think?"
