Are there any Trucker wives/so out there on CM?

I've looked at the groups but most are older posts and I can't get a good idea of where all the trucker wives are at anymore. This is a pretty big place. :-)

If you're here....I'm wondering how many wives/SO of truckers actually do the business taxes themselves for the business. Quarterly or Annually, either way.

I do it quarterly and every time I have done it I get a letter back frm IRS that I've made an error(s) in some form or fashion.

This is so hard, IMO. It's confusing, it's drawn out and quite frankly...I'm not a violent person but I want to break something-- -ANYTHING.banging head into wall

So, if you're here...would you please give a "Hey" even if it's not about doing the taxes. I just need some support sometimes from the gals who understand this business.

 Thank You!!!big smile mini

  • Thank You for commenting. I'm glad I'm not the only one! I broke down one time and was sitting amongst piles of papers, reciepts, log books etc and I just put my head down and CRIED on the coffee table. LOL. I'm determined to get this down but the meantime, there is so much to learn that I don't understand. Mostly, it's there terminology. I need layman's terms. I find myself reading the same question or paragraph explaining something over about 10x and I just don't GET what their saying. I even ordered Taxes for Dummies to help and it did some. Anyway, Thanks for your reply, I appreciate what you're saying too!!!
