RE: Federal Tax Question - CA

As a long time RVer in California, and having taken the H&R Block Tax Preparers course a few years ago (better than staying at a Holiday Inn Express!) and completing the course with a 96% (meaning that 4% of my answers would be wrong as compared to a study that was done that showed the IRS hot line folks got approximately 38% of the answers were wrong as compared to the publications - Source: http://www.gao.gov/products/GGD-90-36), applied and received a tax preparer ID, and I'm a beta-tester for TurboTax®, I think I am in a position to discuss tax ramifications and using TurboTax®. I'll even cite the federal and state tax publications to back up my response. I am, however *not* a certified public accountant, so take my credentials accordingly. Here's my response. You may deduct the California Vehicle License Fee portion of your registration as you would on your tow or other vehicle. You cannot deduct any other taxes or fees on your Schedule A (Source: https://www.ftb.ca.gov/individuals/faq/ivr/222.shtml). If you do not have the breakdown from your billing notice, you can get the information from the CA DMV's web site: https://www.dmv.ca.gov/FeeCalculatorWeb/vlfForm.do) You may deduct any interest on loans for your RV the way you would deduct mortgage interest on your home. You enter this on Schedule A as part of your mortgage interest deduction (Source: http://www.irs.gov/publications/p936/ar02.html, Qualified Home). You may not have received a Form 1098 from the lender, but you *can* (and should) request one by contacting them; otherwise, you can enter your interest in the TurboTax® worksheet (source: https://ttlc.intuit.com/questions/1900976-form-1098-mortgage-interest-statement) and it will transfer to the Schedule A. That's it. Hope this helps.

RE: Campground rates RVing on a budget

Since there is another thread on the same topic and it's been cited, no need for this one to continue.

RE: Double Haul rules in CA?

Only with a truck/fifth-wheel combination, one *can* tow one additional trailer (e.g. boat trailer) in California with a noncommercial Class A, B, or C license. The overall length (front bumper to tail of combination) cannot exceed 65' and in some locations 60' where posted. The double-tow reference in the manual refers to RVs such as Class A or C (or SUV, car, etc.) towing a boat, then something else; i.e. all ball hitches as opposed to king pin hitch then ball hitch thereafter. I checked into this when I went for my Restriction 42 endorsement at the DMV a few years ago. Hope this helps.

RE: Rear hitch boxes / carriers?

I had a Class IV hitch receiver professionally welded to the frame of my FW so that I could attach a cargo carrier that contains my generator and sound box. The cargo carrier could have just as easily been used for items such as folding chairs and the like. The cargo carrier came from Harbor Freight. http://mysite.verizon.net/res1amdv/PIC-0122a.jpg http://mysite.verizon.net/res1amdv/PIC-0120a.jpg http://mysite.verizon.net/res1amdv/PIC-0113a.jpg Just make sure that the items are tied down using bungees or ropes. Also, after adding the items, recheck your weight distribution at truck scales. The new weight at the rear had me redistribute items so that the hitch weight remained the same in the bed of my truck. I did not want to be rear-heavy. Hope this helps.
