Federal income tax ez form 2011 The chassis has been specially designed to serve only as a mobile carriage and mount (and power source, if applicable) for the machinery or equipment, whether or not the machinery or equipment is in operation. Federal income tax ez form 2011 The chassis could not, because of its special design and without substantial structural modification, be used as part of a vehicle designed to carry any other load. Federal income tax ez form 2011 The vehicle must have traveled less than 7,500 miles on public highways during the taxable year. Federal income tax ez form 2011 Vehicles specially designed for off-highway transportation. Federal income tax ez form 2011 A vehicle is not treated as a highway vehicle if the vehicle is specially designed for the primary function of transporting a particular type of load other than over the public highway and because of this special design, the vehicle's capability to transport a load over a public highway is substantially limited or impaired.

Federal income tax ez form 2011   You can use devices that measure the miles the vehicle has traveled (such as hubometers) to figure the gallons of fuel used to propel the vehicle. Federal income tax ez form 2011 Add to this amount the fuel consumed while idling or warming up the motor before propelling the vehicle. Federal income tax ez form 2011 The difference between your total fuel used and the fuel used to propel the vehicle is the fuel used in the separate motor. Federal income tax ez form 2011 Example. Federal income tax ez form 2011 Hazel owns a refrigerated truck. Federal income tax ez form 2011 It has a separate motor for the refrigeration unit. Federal income tax ez form 2011 The same tank supplies both motors. Federal income tax ez form 2011 Using the truck's hubometer, Hazel figures that 90% of the fuel was used to propel the truck.
