Gaining the help of a professional may be your best bet when looking at filing back taxes in the trucking industry.
For truck drivers especially, this filing can be difficult because the IRS can see it as an evasion of responsibilities. Filing back taxes means it’s unlikely you will get the deductibles you would have qualified for that year.
There may be interest and penalty fees associated with filing late, but the help of a professional may be able to limit those fees and get you some relief if you are unable to pay your taxes. Filing back taxes can seem complicated, which is why it’s important to keep records of all of your years on the road. Once again, this can provide relief and resolve problems with audits.
