Delivery vehicle
« on: February 23, 2013, 09:18:09 PM »
If you were going to purchase a new delivery vehicle what might it be. I have just purchased the perfect delivery vehicle for minatures. Since it is getting near tax time do you think Uncle Sam will let me take this as a tax deduction? I need my brother Sam to work on it. Dog on it!

Can we expect to see the construction of a period ash or hickory roof rack?
Regards, Jack.

Do you already expense/deduct for a general transportation vehicle? If not, that's how I'd treat this (and what great fun it is, we only sold our MGB in '99). People even deduct for Hummers, so a little MGB is nothing.

If you insist on inventing a special vehicle for miniatures, you'd have to prove you make and/or transport miniatures, and that your current vehicles can't/don't work for that; but it can be proved.

A MB SRS would be a better delivery vehicle.  Remember time is money.

Make sure that you acquire a "vanity" plate that identifies your craft-it is an additional deduction when tax time rolls around-advertising ya know!
ps my plate reads CBNTMKR
Just a little ole country cabinetmaker....
