This may be the merriest Christmas ever.  ‘Tis the (tax) season for a tax-deductible Work Truck!  For a limited time only, you can give yourself a gift that will keep on giving. Thanks to Section 179 of the IRS Tax Code, you can get that new Commercial Vehicle you’ve been needing for your business AND take the total price of purchase or lease off of your 2020 taxes. 

It sounds to be too good to be true.  But, it’s not!  Section 179 was put into place, available for small businesses (including truck drivers, independent construction company owners, etc.) to promote businesses investing in themselves and to stimulate the economy.  While many are under the impression Section 179 is too complicated to navigate through, nothing could be further from the truth.  It’s actually very simple.

 

Gift Yourself a Tax Break


 

The Capitol Christmas Tree recently made headlines when it reached the White House in a Flatbed Truck on November 20 after a cross-country journey from Southwest Colorado. 

While most don’t receive the attention that this noble one was awarded, over 25 million Christmas trees are sold every holiday season, according to the National Christmas Tree Association.  The majority of people don’t think twice about how their tree got from the forest to the lot, but transporting the trees has added an extra jingle to hundreds of Flatbed Truck drivers’ pockets. 

You too can join the festivities and make a little, or a lot, of extra Christmas cash.  All you need is a Flatbed Truck.  Here’s how:

Large Load Hauling

2020 has been an unprecedented year for truck drivers.  Whether it has hit you beneath the belt or has worked wonders for your wallet, how you handle your 2020 tax return is bound to make a big difference, one way or the other.

Many truck drivers don’t realize the benefits that are available to them or think they are so complicated, taking advantage of them is not worth the effort.  That is far from the truth, however.

How the 179 Tax Code Works

The goal at tax time, for those in the trucking industry, is always to reduce Taxable Gross Income since taxes are paid on Adjusted Taxable Income which is your income after qualified deductions.

Truck drivers, like other small business owners, are entitled to deductions and incentives that are set into place for them through Section 179, [...]

This year shows all the tell-tale signs of being one of the craziest Christmases ever.  December hasn’t even arrived yet and already, hot ticket items are selling out with no restocking date in sight like the ever-popular PS5 and some of the LOL doll line. 

Meeting Holiday Delivery Demand

COVID-19 is being blamed for some of the madness.  Research shows that in Christmases past, 62% of shoppers purchased most of their gifts just a week before December 25.  A whopping 85% of all purchases are expected to be made online for the 2020 holiday season. 

With truckers already overwhelmed keeping medical supplies and equipment, food and water, and TOILET PAPER in transit, the demands of holiday shopping are becoming and increasing issue.

“Expect delays,” Fox News reporter Lauren Pryzbyl warned on air Cyber Monday. 


 

Truck drivers have been on the front line of defense in the COVID-19 crisis and now, according to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), they very well may be front of the line for the vaccine as well. 

The CDC recently revamped their recommendations for exactly who would be eligible to receive the initial rounds of Coronavirus vaccinations when the time comes that a vaccine is approved.  Since it is possible supplies will be short, essential workers will be top on the list to get them.  Exactly what groups were deemed essential workers has been a matter of controversy.

While truck drivers may not be tending to the individual medical needs of Covid-19 ridden patients, they are the reason the medicine and other supplies are available.  The CDC has made it known that those who keep society functioning [...]
