Podcast Show Notes
In today’s show, we discuss truckers and their taxes in an interview with Mason War, CEO and Co-Founder of COS Accounting & Tax. Mason has some tax advice for all truckers as the tax deadline looms.
He also explains the pros and cons of being a 1099 driver and tells us about a new COVID-related deduction that truckers tend to overlook. Lots of useful info here.
But first, we’ve got the obligatory Covid-related news including more extensions and vaccines, the Canadian Electronic log roll-out, lawsuits involving Prime,Inc., sleeper berth pay, and independent contractors, and I’ll tell you when to expect the next safety blitz.
The government has been busy too, with pushes for underride guards, speed limiters, mileage-based taxes, and more truck tolls. President Biden wants to fortify the supply chain while the FMCSA warns truck drivers of massive job losses. All while thousands of drivers are being lost to drug testing. Yeah, that makes sense.
Thankfully we have listener feedback to cheer us up; from Danny, Taran, Shawn, and of course Stevie.
