Truck yeah! It’s time for MATS again. From March 23rd to March 25th the Mid-America Trucking Show will be the place to be. Come out for a good time, we will even be there to celebrate all things trucking.

The Mid-America Trucking Show 2017


MATS is a big deal. It’s an annual heavy-duty trucking event that’s the biggest trucking show in the world. Mats is the longest running trucking show in history and attracts over 75k attendees from all over the world. If you’re in the trucking industry then this is a must-see event, located in Louisville Kentucky.

In 1972 MATS was created to provide the trucking industry with a place to come together to work towards making advances in the industry by sharing ideas, and showing off new, top of the line products and technology.

By going to this free event you’ll be able to take a peek at the newest trucks and technology for everyone in the trucking industry. Over 1,000 trucking companies will be attending to tell you about the services and products they offer. Plus, the 1,100,000 square foot exhibit space will be filled with trucks, celebrities, seminars, and exciting events.

You can enjoy the PKY Truck Beauty Championship, which is named in honor of Paul K. Young, who started MATS. The show involves giving out awards and accolades to custom trucks, and is a site to see! A few of the categories included people’s choice, working combo, and limited mileage dump combo.

The educational seminars include a variety of valuable information for everyone included in the trucking industry. You can attend the How To Get More MPGs Out of Your Truck seminar, presented by North American Council on Fuel Efficiency, as well as the Building Profitable Freight Relationships seminar, presented by Truckstop.com.

After learning and seeing a lot of awesome trucks you can cut loose at the free MATS concert, with Tony Justice, the 2nd generation trucker out of East Tennessee, with songs about the trucking life he lives. Then Thompson Square, the talented duo that earned the ACM Award for “Vocal Duo of the Year” will perform. These events are free while supplies last.

5 Trucker Trends to Watch

0
We’re rolling into spring, leaving winter behind, and it feels good. Right now, there’s nothing on your mind—you’re just enjoying the open road. But a voice in the back of your head says, “Hey, what are you missing? You gotta be missing something!”
So just in case, we’re bringing you an update on the latest happenings in our neck of the woods. Here are some news items and events that affect you as a trucker over the upcoming months.

FMCSA Considering Sleep Apnea Rule

The FMCSA announced that they are seeking feedback about sleep apnea in commercial vehicle drivers as an initial move towards a ruling on the condition. Basically, the rule could mean transportation workers in safety sensitive positions who exhibit multiple risk factors for sleep apnea would undergo evaluation and treatment by a healthcare professional with expertise in sleep disorders.

Are you going to MATS? See ya there!

In case you missed it on social media, we’re headed to the Mid-America Trucking Show March 31st - April 2nd! We’ll be giving out FREE tickets to the show, which you can claim here. Keep an eye out for cool prizes and the inside scoop on the latest ExpressTruckTax and TruckLogics developments.

What is Alice Isn’t Dead?

There’s a new podcast shooting to the top of the iTunes charts—and it’s about a trucker! Alice Isn’t Dead follows a truck driver on a quest to find her wife, who was presumed dead. Along the way, the trucker meets unsavory characters, ghost towns, and uncovers a dark conspiracy.

Are you ready to file your Personal Taxes?

Don’t forget, Trucking Nation, your personal taxes are due Monday, April 18th. If you’re not ready to file, head over to ExpressExtension to e-file a personal tax extension! Normally, your tax deadline would be April 15th, but that is Emancipation Day, which will be celebrated as a government holiday in Washington, D.C. So, the tax deadline was moved to Monday. (Hey, it gives you more time!) And that’s okay with us. By the way, make sure you don’t miss out on any trucker specific deductions.

There’s an IFTA Deadline, and there’s a HVUT Deadline

Don’t forget, deadlines are approaching! The 1st Quarter of IFTA ends in March, so you’ll have a payment due in April. And summer is almost here, so your 2290s are only months away. Get a head start now!

There’s always something happening in the trucking world. Make sure you follow us on Facebook and Twitter to keep up with the latest transportation news. Start planning your finances and truck taxes now, and we’ll see you at MATS later this month!

Don’t forget, our dedicated customer support team is here to answer any of your HVUT 2290 filing questions! You can reach them by phone at 704.234.6005, live chat via our website, or email at support@expresstrucktax.com.

Guess who’s getting ready to hit the open road?

It’s your favorite support team, the ExpressTruckTax crew! We’re taking our show on the road, heading to the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, Kentucky.

From March 26-28th, we’ll be at Booth 66121 handing out free stuff and mingling with the good folk of the Trucking Nation!

MATS is always the highlight of our year at ExpressTruckTax! We just love meeting everyone, users and nonusers alike (or as we like to think of them, future-users!). But this year in particular is extra special because we’re bringing along our friends from TruckLogics!

If you haven’t heard about TruckLogics, our ExpressTruckTax crew designed it. Based on years of feedback from owner-operators and small fleet owners, they built TruckLogics to incorporate every tool transportation professionals were looking for, but at a price they could afford. The result? A cloud-based business management solution that’s portable, affordable, and super easy to use.

You can learn more about TruckLogics at our MATS booth, or right now at TruckLogics.com. Check it out and see if it can benefit you or the trucker(s) in your life.

Oh, and I almost forgot to mention: free tickets, ya’ll! It’s only while supplies last– first come, first served. Just give our support heroes a shout at 704.234.6005 or email us at support@expresstrucktax.com to snatch up your MATS tickets before they’re gone.

Show us some love and stop by our booth at MATS. We'll see you soon, Trucking Nation!

ThrowBack Thursday: Mid America Trucking Show

0
Happy Thursday Trucking Nation!
This is a very special day - it is the official kick off of the 43rd Annual Mid-America Trucking Show. ExpressTruckTax,  with sister products TSNA and (launching today) TruckLogics, have the proud honor of representing the best online services for truckers and trucking companies at the show.
Now, no Thursday would be complete without a proper throwback and we are going to do it Mid-America style - all the way back to 1972...

The Mid-America Trucking Show began in the early 1970's, when a private management group was formed by Paul K. Young, to create the largest and most diversified trucking show in the United States of America. The first Mid-America Trucking Show was held in 1972 with 83 Exhibitors and 4000 visitors in attendance. The show occupied a portion of the West Wing of the original Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center

The 1st Mid America Trucking Show in 1972
From it's humble beginnings in 1972 the Mid-America Trucking Show has grown to be the largest annual heavy-duty trucking event in the world. MATS is more than a trade show. It is the annual forum for the heavy-duty trucking industry, providing face-to-face interaction between industry representatives and trucking professionals. Attendees can network with Fortune 500 companies and media outlets from around the world go to MATS to report on the business of trucking, and where trucking business gets done.

ExpressTruckTax will be at the show through the 29th. If you are going to MATS, make a pit stop by our booth # 72144 we love meeting our customers in person and getting great feedback. Stay tuned for more on the Mid America Trucking Show and follow our Facebook: ExpressTruckTax and Twitter: @expresstrucktax for updates throughout the show.
