Alright Trucking Nation, April is here! And that means a few things for us in the transportation industry.
What’s going on in April? Well, your personal taxes and fuel taxes are both due. And there’s a chance for you to work on your health!
Extend Your Taxes
First up, your personal taxes are due April 18th. Normally they would be due April 15th, but the weekend buys you some time! And you can get even more time with a Personal Tax Extension Form 4868.
Let’s face it, filing your taxes isn’t fun. But do you know every deduction a trucker can file? There are a lot, so don’t sit on this! And yeah, finding some more deductions doesn’t make it fun. But it makes filing a little bit easier, don’t you think?
Whether you’re filing by yourself or you have someone filing for you, you can get an extension for an additional 6 months to file Form 1040, 1040A, 1040-EZ, 1040NR, 1040NR-EZ, 1040-PR, or 1040-SS.
Let’s Get Ready for IFTA!
Alright, we know you don’t want to hear all this tax stuff. If you’re anything like me, it just gives you anxiety. But that’s why we try to make things easier.
How easy? Well, the same login credentials you use for your ExpressTruckTax account works for ExpressIFTA. So you can generate your fuel tax report with the same ease of use that you expect for your 2290s.
How else can you get ready? Instead of waiting until the last moment, take this next week to gather all of your fuel records and trip sheets.
If you’re not running around like a chicken with your head cut off, IFTA is pretty easy, really.
And if you want to make your next round of IFTA even easier, pick up an app like TruckLogics. With this handy cloud-based trucking management software, you can generate and send invoices, create profit & loss reports, and use ProMiles for one-click trip sheets.
Now Is the Time to Get Healthy
Okay, you were supposed to get healthy at the new year. But you didn’t!
If your diet fell apart three weeks into the new year, let April be the month you get healthy!
How? Well, eat better. Change your diet to focus on whole grains, whole veggies, and lean meats and proteins. Yeah, that doesn’t sound as great as a bucket of hot wings, but you need to make some changes.
After you get your diet in check, find time to exercise! We know you can! No excuses. In fact, we’ve told you how to turn your trucking environment into a portable gym. So don’t let that stop you.
Besides, you want that beach bod, don’t you? Ha!
So use April as your time to shine with your personal taxes, fuel taxes, and physical well being. If you have any questions about e-filing your fuel taxes, give the support experts a call at 704.234.6005 or an email at Support@ExpressTruckTax.com.
Are YOU ready for April?
