Tax season can be a stressful time for anyone, but for owner-operators in the trucking industry, it’s a whole different ball game. However, a group of innovative truckers has found a hilarious way to avoid paying taxes altogether – by declaring their trucks as dependents.
According to owner-operator and tax wizard Trucker Tom, “I was tired of paying all these taxes every year, so I thought, why not declare my truck as a dependent? It’s always with me, it needs constant care and attention, and it’s a vital part of my livelihood.”
Trucker Tom and his fellow owner-operators have started a movement, with many following suit and declaring their trucks as dependents on their tax returns. However, not everyone is amused by their clever tax scheme.
“The idea is absurd,” said IRS agent Nancy No-Fun. “Trucks are not living beings, and they certainly can’t be considered dependents.”
Despite the pushback from the IRS, Trucker Tom and his crew are standing their ground and continuing to claim their trucks as dependents. After all, a trucker’s gotta do what a trucker has gotta do to save some money.
So next time you’re filling out your tax return, just remember – there might be a trucker out there claiming their rig as a dependent and laughing all the way to the bank.
