IRS AUDITS OF OHIO OWNER-OPERATORS

Over the road trucking is a tough business, especially for the typical owner-operator. Income is often erratic, depending on the number of loads available and shipping schedules. Many trucking contracts have inflexible fuel reimbursement rates which can make for very slim profit margins. As a result, many Ohio truck drivers find themselves behind on taxes. To make matters worse, there is a cottage industry of "trucking tax specialists" out there who provide misleading, often fraudulent, advice about what a trucker can deduct on his or her tax return. It is not unusual for these "specialists" to invent expenses to artificially lower taxable income.
