    ok guys help me understand something. so i was talking to some owner ops from a company in ohio. and i was telling them how i report on my personal 60-90k im a owner op. and they looked at me like im crazy because they report 20k or less or some a loss. my question is. how do you report a loss. doesnt the irs go to your bank during an audit and force them to hand over records?

    Take every possible deduction that is available to you. Make sure whoever is doing your taxes is WELL VERSED in the ever CHANGING Trucker Taxes. Personally I use ATBS. They know every possible deduction and stay current on every tax law change
     
    4noReason Thanks this.

    You deduct everything you can and maybe a few things you shouldn't, and take a few more weeks off.

    Get someone to help you with your situation.

    Atbs has issues with their services, so look at a few accountants.

    People can't get to crazy. My tax guy said you can't report no profits for every year. The IRS will consider your job a hobby. You can write you truck off first 3 years. Plus all the normal stuff fuel and repairs and anything you buy for the truck. Just because you list something doesn't mean the IRS will say it's ok in an audit. Something crazy like buying car or pickup truck and saying it's for the business.

    I went through an audit before and the guy had 'No Idea' that truckstops had showers! .. now this was a guy that had several accolades from the Army all over his wall in his office :confused:

    This is the first time in 28 years I've shown a loss. I don't know if that's good or bad? But it was due to depreciation

    I don't care for people who hang "I love me" items at the workplace. I would prefer they hang their family.

    Oh wait...
