ComTax Truck Stop

Welcome to the ComTax Truck Stop

Here, we will be serving up opinions on all sort of matters relating to compliance and taxation. ComTax – that’s short for Compliance Tax; you know, IFTA, IRP, HVUT – the list is long.

We’re new to this blogging thing, but we’re going to try to get you information that will be helpful to you and the running of your operation. We’ve been at this a long time and we think we have a few tricks of the trade that you might find useful, or maybe you’ve got it all figured out. And if you do, let us know !! Ha..Ha…

Stay tuned for more…
