Tax Loophole For New SUV & Pickup Truck Owners

SUVs & Trucks That Qualify For The Tax Break


Based on 6000 lbs. gross vehicle weight, not actual weight Although there is currently a cap on tax deductions for cars used for business purposes, vehicles weighing 6,000 pounds or more (like trucks and SUVs) are exempt from these caps.
