    The TM has been really open about all the runs and stuff at the terminal so I feel pretty comfy with utility. I still own a couple of trucks and stuff, so it will be nice to get home most nights and check on things. Plus we have a baby due in May, not saying it ain't about the money cause it is and will always be, but being home nights or early morning will be kinda nice.

    Have no idea, that was just one of his examples about open stuff. Just do what i'm told to get my feet wet and see how stuff works. Then I'll try to take advantage of what's open.

    Just found out all this money I'm making is going to cause me to owe next year because I am considered rich in the Obama plan. Y'all better check into it. I have 2 kids an claim 2 and have many days away from home. The Bush cuts are ending and the Obama plan is starting. The year after next I will owe more with the same income. Obama is slick. All of this is taking place now but people won't see it until after the elections. They were going to do it last year but it would interfere with his 8 year term

    He said he wouldn't increase the middle class. His definition of middle class is $50k
    It won't affect a lot of people but us rich ltl drivers that has a working wife will probably owe next year. I have a lot of deductions and the same income next year I would owe $1500 and the following year I would owe $2700. If my wife didn't work I would get a $6000 return. This is mainly going to affect those of us that want to work. It won't affect the "give me" crowd

    You part time drivers should be ok but keep in mind that I have a lot of deductions. I would still check with a CPA to see if uncle Sam is getting enough. It's going to affect a lot of retired folks that make a few bucks on the side also

    How do people get more back on their income tax than they paid in the first place?

    Deductions...some cheat...I let H&R Block do mine, thataway I'm not gonna get in trouble, I did my taxes for years and I was always nervous, I was taught by the best how to claim stuff that ain't there and you need no reciepts for.

    My life is a bit different now, I just let the Block take care of it.

    My CPA took care of me all the years I was an owner op. Things are a lot simpler these days now that I'm a company driver. h+ r block is probably a third of the cost of my CPA but I would feel guilty using them after all the help she's been. Every year at this time I ride my bike to the Alabama line just to do my taxes. She also educates me on all of this stuff so I won't be hit with any surprises next year.
