I recently bought 3 rental properties and need a truck. Someone told me of the SUV tax deduction/credit for vehicles weighing over 6,000 pounds. Can you give any advice where this is concerned?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Patty Streeter,  at AskPatty.com SUVs that have a gross vehicle weight of over 6,000 pounds may not be subject to passenger automobile depreciation limitations. Therefore, it may be possible to write off some or most of the cost of the SUV in the year you purchase it. However, the SUV must be used primarily for business reasons to qualify for any depreciation deduction. Your daily commute to your office does not qualify as a business use of the SUV. Please check with a tax professional if you are unsure.
