    I guess I have to call Lincoln and see about getting my W-2.
    :(

    That’s good that’s it’s not just me.
    I’m in no hurry to do taxes, just the bank wants my W2’s to see if I’m worthy of a loan.

    Remember, to take your Meals & Incedental Expense deduction.

    The IRS changed the name from Per Diem to Meals and Incidental Expenses in 2016.

    You can deduct 75% of the maximum $63 allowable per day or $47.25 on days you're either headed into or out of hometime.

    Every full day out = $63 deduction
    Every day you’re coming/going out = $47.25 deduction.

    Whatever that total is, multiply it by your tax bracket to see what you’ll save.

    Earning $37,950 to $91,900 puts most of us in the 25% tax bracket.

    A $15,000 M. & I.E. deduction means
    $15,000
    X 25%
    Which equals saving $3,7500 in direct tax savings. Nothing to sneeze at. I believe this is the last year for it, too, as they simplified the tax code next year.

    I can’t believe Crete has 100 drivers per 1 asset manager. That’s spread too ****ing thin. I can never get a hold of anyone, I’m always on hold for like an hour.

    Something's wrong with that. I very rarely need to call but when I do, I get them almost right away usually. It may not be MY asset manager that answers every time but I get someone quickly.

    Unloaded at the Carlisle terminal in Tacoma WA. Load going to Fairbanks. Picked up at a container place in Portland OR. No room to turn around in their “yard” so they have you back in across a 4 lane. Glad I don’t do that everyday.
