Federal Tax Update — March
from By David S. De Jong, Esq., CPA, Stein Sperling Bennett De Jong P.C.
In Howard v. Commissioner, the tax court determined that a long-distance truck driver who lived in his truck but used his mother's home as a mailing address had no "tax home" and could not deduct travel expenses. The court did allow a deduction for "truck stop electrification" expenses, which allowed powering the truck without diesel fuel while taking mandated rest breaks.
