Mark, I think you are missing the point. This forum is known to be s place to share experience with other RV'ers. This is tax season and it would be nice to hear how others have dealt with tax issues and even what their accountants have advised them to do.
I personally would never use advise I received from a web forum as my only source of information regarding a matter as important as the irs.
If people share there experience regarding tax strategies I may give them enough information they can snare with their accountants and possibly save themselves 1000's on their taxes.
it you know anything about the law, especially tac code you would know that some things are cut and dry and others are not.
that's why I said if you ask 2 cps's the same question you could get 2 different answers. just because your accountant may advise you on a issue doesn't mean its always going to be correct. that is why I always make sure that any cpa I hire for my business has actually defended a audit in the same industry that my business in involved with.
As you know, as a percentage of the population, RV'ers make up a very small group. A lot of CPA's have no experience with RV's and possible business use. Since they don't know they will take the easy way out.
'Whats wrong with truck drivers? I have been involved in the logistics industry for almost 30 yrs now and there are some great very smart people delivering loads everyday. There are idiots in every profession.
