SUV Tax Deduction

As 2002 is winding down, everyone needs to be thinking about maximizing their tax deductions. This month's letter details some tax tips you may not know about. I hope everyone finds it helpful and informative. You may or may be able to use this tax advice. I urge you to consult a TAX EXPERT before you implement a tax strategy based on this information.

Thinking about a new business vehicle? How about an SUV or a PICK-UP?

The IRS normally limits the depreciation that can be deducted on the purchase price of a business vehicle. And, that limit is pretty small - only $ 3,060 for the first year for a 100% business use vehicle. However, for some business "trucks" the first year depreciation can be as high as $ 24,000. A "truck" is defined by IRS as a vehicle with over 6,000 lbs. of gross weight. This gross weight of the vehicle is displayed on the inside of the driver's door.

Just buy one of the following vehicles:
