What are some expenses a truck driver can claim on his taxes?
Asked by: Jesica Hogan
My dad work for a small company as their long haul driver. He gets full checks from them, no taxes or anything taken out. He wants to know if there’s anything he can claim so he can lower the amount of taxes he has to pay at the end of the year.
Here’s what he pays for out of pocket:
Can he claim any of those? And are there any other tax tips you guys can give for a truck driver?
What is the federal M&IE per-diem rate? I’ve seen people mention it but I have no idea what it is. It seems like it can help him out a lot.
