taxes & the independent contractor

AUTHOR: Jerry - (United States of America)

Just a tip for you guys having an issue. The dispatch boss gave you guys everything you need to HANG that company. As an independent contractor they can not force dispatch,if they do the IRS considers it an employee employer relationship. It is easy to look up. Makes them liable for all the taxes they have not paid in on each and every one of you guys... Lol that dummy handed you the ammo just like that!!!!

Good luck felllers!!!

WHY CRY ALL THE TIME

AUTHOR: Jasman - (United States of America)

i am a dispatcher for jnj express and its  shame when the lease drivers cries over and oer, when they sign their papers, tey know that its force dipatch,  how else could we make ourmoney, i got a guy in florida right now sitting because he cries all the time and wants to pick his own loads, this company has almost 200 blacks working them and about 20 whites and almost 90 percent of the blacks whine, they say that tey want to work, but all they want is handouts, especially the blacks in mephis and the black lease drivers, we have 1 black guy at work and when their is a problen, they run to lester who is also black, but has no real power to change anything, this is a good company and if you want to run, then we got the miles, im just tired of those cry babies, so wat is force dispatch, so what you dont make any money, thats your own fault, we got a black lease driver who cries all the time, im not making  money, i got t sit, finally we showed him that h dont run the show, please apply only if you are serious and you will make money. i am the driver managers boss and i promise to run you hard and shut you downn if you can take orders, so please stop crying and start driving

The Formula

AUTHOR: Jim - (USA)

To be a good, profitable owner operator you MUST be a good driver and a good businessman.  Often times, you won't find those traits in one person!  It doesn't take a law degree to understand as an "independent contractor" you take on ALL the expenses of running the truck.  This guy was surprised he had to pay for fuel!  He clearly had no knowledge of what he was getting into.  Who's fault is that?  Like another respondent said, these FLEASE deals rarely make sense.  The company holds all the cards and you're no more "independent" than a dog on a leash.  They no doubt presented him with a contract which he apparently DID NOT READ.  Otherwise he wouldn't be acting so surprised about paying for fuel!  Again, who's fault is that?  Everyday we are presented with situations which require us to make a decision.  To do so, we MUST fully understand the consequences of that decision.

these companies should be shut down

AUTHOR: nightrider38340 - (USA)

these companies should be shut down and really investigated, to stay a driver is dumb to want to become an owner operator is silly, its the company who needs to be investigated and held liable

#8 Consumer Suggestion

You Were Duped

AUTHOR: John - (U.S.A.)

Most trucking companies that offer leases are just trying to unload tired old rigs to uninformed, uneducated drivers. Face it, the leases are written by lawyers for lawyers, not a trucker with a high school degree. Leasing very rarely makes sense unless you are a fleet owner and have very steady load traffic. I really feel sorry for those students in the trucking schools that get duped by these programs. They are doomed to fail. If the choice is ever lease or walk, take the walk.. you'll look back and smile.

Tell Us, How Do You Define a "Lease" Driver? Do You Even Know?

AUTHOR: Jim - (USA)

You act surprised that you need to pay for fuel and other expenses.  Did you even bother to READ and UNDERSTAND what being a lease driver is all about?  Did you actually think you were going to be paid the GROSS PAID MILES for each loaad?  Are you aware as a lease driver YOU are on the hook for truck expenses?  Are you aware you are on the hook for BOTH ENDS of social security tax?  Do you have ANY IDEA of what you got into?  Am I saying this is a good deal?  No!  Its a FLEASE!  However, nobody held a gun to your head to get into this.  You were presented with paperwork to describe and define your position as a flease driver.  DID YOU READ IT?  Apparently NOT!  Otherwise you wouldn't be acting sooooo surprised to pay for fuel!  If you would have read what you were getting into BEFORE getting into it, then maybe you would have made an intelligent decision to not become involved with a FLEASE agreement!
