  • Quick references anyone-trucking industry? Federal

    I have an interview tomorrow morning with a trucking company for payroll. It came up just a few hours ago, and I'm looking to see if anyone has any articles or links regarding wage and hour and/or general state taxation rules for OTR truckers.

    Sorry for the late notice, but I didn't get much notice either.

    Thanks for anything anyone can provide.

    1. Read the following (Motor Carrier exception). This is a conditional overtime exception.

    2. There are DOT regulations on maximum hours allowed to be driven during a certain period of time. I used to have pointers on these, but DOT rearranged their website. DOT also has rules on record keeping different the FLSA.

    3. I also found the following somewhere but failed to cite it. I am pretty sure it is correct, and you could probably web search the source.

    Interstate Transportation Workers
    Railroad and motor carrier employees who work in more than one state are subject only to the state and local income tax laws of their state of residence. Under a federal law signed July 6, 1990, railroad and motor carrier employees working interstate are subject to income taxes only in their state of legal residence, regardless of where the employee works most of the time. Employers also are required to file information returns only with the resident state. (Section 11504 of Title 49 of the U.S. Code, as amended by the Amtrak Reauthorization and Improvement Act of 1990, P.L. 101-322, Section 7)

        Good luck, Patty.
