Taxicab Industry Edition
 
The initial examination of taxicab drivers in the Los Angeles District was begun in connection with the examinations of two corporate taxicab companies. Approximately 650 taxi drivers were under examination during the years 1987 to 1989, with average adjustments of $8,000.00 per driver and 7 hours of investigation time per case.

At one time, cab companies required cab drivers to report the meter readings and the money collected to a company official at the end of their shift. The drivers were employees who received a minimum salary and a commission at the end of the pay period. In that scenario, income from tips was the big issue. Now, a company fins it easier to charge drivers a flat rate for using the vehicles and not have the problems of employment taxes and the review and manipulating of meter readings. This method of operation for the can companies is the subject of Revenue Ruling 71-572, 1971-2CB347.

What The IRS Tells Their Auditor About Taxicab Drivers
Generally, the taxicab industry is characterized by taxpayers who keep very informal records or no records at all. This was demonstrated during the examination of over 600 taxi driver returns where records were inaccurate or non-existent.

Since the change, taxi drivers renting vehicles from the company are treated as independent contractors no record of fares earned is maintained by the company. If the cab company owns the taxis, the driver must pay a rental fee for the use of the vehicle. The rental fee is computed on a weekly basis and may include charges for the property damage insurance.

Drivers who own their own vehicles are allowed to operate under the company license, but they are charge a fee for the dispatch service and insurance.

Great American Tax Accountant's is proud to announce that a portion of your investment in our products will be sent directly to the Morale Welfare and Recreation Department of our Armed Forces.
 
Sacrifice is not limited to our men and women in uniform.  Children, spouses and families of military personnel are deprived of special times while their loved ones are deployed far from home.  Even when hostilities subside, they often remain separated – sometimes for years!
 
With all of the conflicts taking place around the world, the children, especially, are often focused on a theatre of battle where their mother or father is serving.  No one can take the place of the children’s parents, but everyone can make a difference in their lives.  The children and family members left behind need our support now more than ever.
 
The Morale Welfare Recreation (MWR) Department organizes a variety of activities and programs to address the needs of these individuals – providing quality support, recreation, and educational services to contribute to the retention, readiness, and mental, physical, and emotional well-being and enjoyment of the military community.
