Tips for Improving Fuel Mileage in Your Diesel Truck

How often have you tried to improve the fuel mileage of your diesel truck? As a truck driver, this would be one of the primary concerns but not always if you follow the care and maintenance tips regularly.  Moreover, as the fuel costs are frequently on a rise, it is extremely important to get good mileage from your truck. Taking the right precautions at the right time is the right way to save money and keep your truck healthy. Here’s a run-down of stress-free ways that can help your truck move efficiently.

  •  Regular Care and Maintenance:

Would you skip your meals for a day if you have work or wait for the weekend to do the everyday chores? Of course not, then why take chances when it comes to the care and maintenance of your truck. Regular maintenance helps in the smooth running of the vehicle and uses less fuel too. Doing few simple tasks can help you avoid the bad after-effects such as check if the tires are properly inflated, change the oil regularly, regular engine maintenance, clean the air filter, and keep the fuel injectors clean.

  • Accelerate in a Slower Pace:

Driving at a slower pace is not something that many truck drivers would love especially if it is a powerful diesel truck. But doing so will help them save fuel and add to the vehicle’s efficiency. According to experts, “it takes 4 times more power to push your truck against air resistance at 70mph as it does when you’re driving 35mph”.

  • Lighten the Vehicle:

Keeping the vehicle excessively loaded like carrying the unwanted metal boxes burns more fuel. Therefore, it is advisable to free the vehicle from excess load and lighten the truck to save fuel and money. Taking few simple steps can increase the fuel mileage of your diesel truck.

Hope the aforementioned tips help you increase the fuel mileage of your truck and its efficiency too.

Tax preparers take advantage of e-file options – IRS Recommends!

Taxpayer Assistance Centers Service Changes for 2012 Filing Season

Beginning this year, IRS Taxpayer Assistance Centers generally will not accept bulk returns for processing and mailing, particularly when it affects taxpayer services. The IRS hopes to eliminate the practice of taxpayer representatives dropping off completed returns for processing, especially during peak operating periods.

The intent of this policy change is not to limit assistance to taxpayers or their authorized representatives. Nor is it intended to limit taxpayer representatives’ visits to support their clients, particularly in situations where the taxpayer is facing financial harm or undue hardship, such as delinquent returns or to start or stop an installment agreement. It is designed, primarily, to stop the practice of dropping off returns solely for processing and mailing when the returns can be mailed directly to the IRS processing center. The TACs will accept returns with imminent statute implications, with remittances or other situations where it’s in the best interest of the taxpayer and the Service to accept them.

Local TAC managers have the authority to make exceptions to this policy and will accept drop off returns if, in their opinion, tax preparation and other customer account services are not impacted.

The IRS encourages all tax preparers to take advantage of available e-file options to file returns electronically to avoid the need to have returns accepted and mailed at the local Taxpayer Assistance Center. IRS has also mandated e-filing for taxpayers with 25 or more vehicles with registered gross weight of 55,000 lbs or more.

Excise Taxes – Tax Tips for Construction Companies

Construction companies may be liable for the federal highway vehicle use tax. These companies may also be eligible to claim an income tax credit or a refund for gasoline, diesel fuel, or kerosene that is used in nontaxable uses.

Heavy Highway Vehicle Use Tax

A truck or truck tractor is subject to the highway vehicle use tax if it:

Is a highway motor vehicle (generally, a vehicle moved by its own motor and designed to transport a load over the public highways, even if it is designed to do other  things)

Is registered or required to be registered for highway use

Is used on a public highway, and

·Has a taxable gross weight of at least 55,000 pounds (taxable gross weight means the weight of the vehicle plus the weight of the trailers and semi-trailers customarily used in connection with vehicles of the same type, plus the weight of the maximum load customarily carried on vehicles, trailer, and semi-trailers of the same type)
The tax applies to the first use of a taxable vehicle on a public highway during the taxable period, which is each July 1st through June 30th. The person in whose name a taxable vehicle is registered or required to be registered must pay the tax on Form 2290, Heavy Highway Vehicle Use Tax Return. The tax is due by the last day of the month following the month in which the vehicle is first used during the taxable period. Thus, if you use a taxable vehicle in July, you must file Form 2290by August 31st.

Fuel Tax Credits and Refunds

A federal excise tax is imposed on gasoline ($.184 per gallon), clear diesel fuel ($.244 per gallon), and clear kerosene ($.244 per gallon). The amount of these taxes may be credited or refunded if these fuels are used in many types of off-road uses. Common off-road uses include use as heating oil, use in stationary engines, use in non-highway vehicles, and use in separate engines mounted on highway vehicles.

Generally, refunds of $750 or more may be claimed quarterly on Form 8849, Claim for Refund ofExcise Taxes. Claims not made on Form 8849 may be claimed as income tax credit on Form 4136,  Credit for Federal Tax Paid on Fuel(PDF).

Note that a credit or refund is not allowable for the following:

· Any use in the propulsion engine of a registered highway vehicle, even if the vehicle is used off the highway·   Any fuel that is lost or destroyed through fire, spillage, or evaporation·         Any use of dyed diesel fuel or dyed kerosene. In fact, you may be subject to a substantial penalty if you use dyed fuel as a fuel in a registered diesel-powered highway vehicle
It is important to keep records to support your claim. Keep these records at your principal place of business. These records should establish the number of gallons used during the period covered by the claim, the dates of purchase, the names and addresses of suppliers and amounts bought from each in the period covered by the claim, the purposes for which you used the fuel, and the number of gallons used for each purpose.

**If you use propane or other special fuels in registered highway vehicles, you may be liable for tax on this use.
