Guidelines to Choose a Mover

Not all moving companies are the same. Although many are legitimate, there are some who attempt to take advantage of their clients. Follow these guidelines to help you choose the right mover:

Get a written estimate from several movers. Be wary of very low estimates. Some companies use the low price to get a contract and later ask for more money before they will remove your belongings from their truck.

Make sure the mover has an operating license. For moves from one state to another, visit protectyourmove.gov to verify a mover's license. For moves within a state, check your state, county or local consumer affairs agency.

Make sure the mover has insurance. If furniture is damaged during the move, the mover's insurance should cover it. Ask how to file a complaint if there are limits to the coverage.

Check the mover's track record. Contact your state or local consumer protection agency or Better Business Bureau to see if there is a history of complaints.

If you have a dispute with a moving company, you can file a complaint with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration or by calling 1-800-832-5660. If you have a dispute about moving your household goods or vehicles internationally, contact the Federal Maritime Commission.

File 2012 tax return Farming purposes. File 2012 tax return   As the owner, tenant, or operator and the ultimate purchaser of fuel that you purchased, you use the fuel on a farm for farming purposes if you use it in any of the following ways. File 2012 tax return To cultivate the soil or to raise or harvest any agricultural or horticultural commodity. File 2012 tax return To raise, shear, feed, care for, train, or manage livestock, bees, poultry, fur-bearing animals, or wildlife. File 2012 tax return To operate, manage, conserve, improve, or maintain your farm and its tools and equipment. File 2012 tax return To handle, dry, pack, grade, or store any raw agricultural or horticultural commodity. File 2012 tax return For this use to qualify, you must have produced more than half the commodity so treated during the tax year. File 2012 tax return The more-than-one-half test applies separately to each commodity. File 2012 tax return Commodity means a single raw product. File 2012 tax return For example, apples and peaches are two separate commodities. File 2012 tax return To plant, cultivate, care for, or cut trees or to prepare (other than sawing logs into lumber, chipping, or other milling) trees for market, but only if these activities are incidental to your farming operations. File 2012 tax return Your tree operations are incidental only if they are minor in nature when compared to the total farming operations. File 2012 tax return   If any other person, such as a neighbor or custom operator (independent contractor), performs a service for you on your farm for any of the purposes included in list items (1) or (2), above, you are considered to be the ultimate purchaser who used the fuel on a farm for farming purposes. File 2012 tax return Therefore, you can still claim the credit or refund for the fuel so used. File 2012 tax return However, see Custom application of fertilizer and pesticide, later. File 2012 tax return If the other person performs any other services for you on your farm for purposes not included in list items (1) or (2) above, no one can claim the credit or refund for fuel used on your farm for those other services. File 2012 tax return Buyer of fuel, including undyed diesel fuel or undyed kerosene. File 2012 tax return   If doubt exists whether the owner, tenant, or operator of the farm bought the fuel, determine who actually bore the cost of the fuel. File 2012 tax return For example, if the owner of a farm and his or her tenant equally share the cost of gasoline used on the farm, each can claim a credit for the tax on half the fuel used. File 2012 tax return Undyed diesel fuel, undyed kerosene, and Other Fuels (including alternative fuel). File 2012 tax return   Usually, the farmer is the only person who can make a claim for credit or refund for the tax on undyed diesel fuel, undyed kerosene, or other fuels (including alternative fuel) used for farming purposes. File 2012 tax return However, see Custom application of fertilizer and pesticide, next. File 2012 tax return Also see Dyed Diesel Fuel and Dyed Kerosene, later. File 2012 tax return Example.

File 2012 tax return Tyler used 200 gallons of undyed diesel fuel that he purchased to perform the work on Haleigh's farm. File 2012 tax return In addition, Haleigh hired contractor Lee Brown to pack and store her apple crop. File 2012 tax return Lee bought 25 gallons of undyed diesel fuel to use in packing the apples. File 2012 tax return Haleigh can claim the credit for the 200 gallons of undyed diesel fuel used by Tyler on her farm because it qualifies as fuel used on the farm for farming purposes. File 2012 tax return No one can claim a credit for the 25 gallons used by Lee because that fuel was not used for a farming purpose included in list items (1) or (2), above. File 2012 tax return In the above example, both Tyler Steele and Lee Brown could have purchased dyed (untaxed) diesel fuel for their tasks. File 2012 tax return Custom application of fertilizer and pesticide. File 2012 tax return   Fuel used on a farm for farming purposes includes fuel used in the application (including aerial application) of fertilizer, pesticides, or other substances. File 2012 tax return Generally, the applicator is treated as having used the fuel on a farm for farming purposes. File 2012 tax return For applicators using highway vehicles, only the fuel used on the farm is exempt. File 2012 tax return Fuel used traveling on the highway to and from the farm is taxable. File 2012 tax return Fuel used by an aerial applicator for the direct flight between the airfield and one or more farms is treated as used for a farming purpose. File 2012 tax return For aviation gasoline, the aerial applicator makes the claim as the ultimate purchaser. File 2012 tax return For kerosene used in aviation, the ultimate purchaser may make the claim or waive the right to make the claim to the registered ultimate vendor. File 2012 tax return A sample waiver is included as Model Waiver L in the appendix of Publication 510. File 2012 tax return A registered ultimate vendor is the person who sells undyed diesel fuel, undyed kerosene, or kerosene for use in aviation to the user (ultimate purchaser) of the fuel for use on a farm for farming purposes. File 2012 tax return To claim a credit or refund of tax, the ultimate vendor must be registered with the Internal Revenue Service at the time the claim is made.

File 2012 tax return Fuel not used for farming. File 2012 tax return   You do not use fuel on a farm for farming purposes when you use it in any of the following ways.

File 2012 tax return For personal use, such as lawn mowing. File 2012 tax return In processing, packaging, freezing, or canning operations. File 2012 tax return In processing crude gum into gum spirits of turpentine or gum resin or in processing maple sap into maple syrup or maple sugar. File 2012 tax return All-terrain vehicles (ATVs). File 2012 tax return   Fuel used in ATVs on a farm for farming purposes, discussed earlier, is eligible for a credit or refund of excise taxes on the fuel. File 2012 tax return Fuel used in ATVs for nonfarming purposes is not eligible for a credit or refund of the taxes. File 2012 tax return If ATVs are used both for farming and nonfarming purposes, only that portion of the fuel used for farming purposes is eligible for the credit or refund. File 2012 tax return Dyed Diesel Fuel and Dyed Kerosene If you purchase dyed diesel fuel or dyed kerosene for a nontaxable use, you must use it only on a farm for farming purposes or for other nontaxable purposes. File 2012 tax return For example, you should not use dyed diesel fuel in a truck that is used both on the farm for farming purposes and on the highway, even though the highway use is in connection with farm business. File 2012 tax return Excise tax applies to the fuel used by the truck on the highways. File 2012 tax return In this situation, undyed (taxed) fuel should be purchased for the truck. File 2012 tax return You should keep fuel records of the use of the truck on the farm for farming purposes, and for other uses. File 2012 tax return You may be eligible for a credit or refund for the excise tax on fuel used on the farm for farming purposes. File 2012 tax return Penalty. File 2012 tax return   A penalty is imposed on any person who knowingly uses, sells, or alters dyed diesel fuel or dyed kerosene for any purpose other than a nontaxable use. File 2012 tax return The penalty is the greater of $1,000 or $10 per gallon of the dyed diesel fuel or dyed kerosene involved. File 2012 tax return After the first violation, the $1,000 portion of the penalty increases depending on the number of violations. File 2012 tax return For more information on this penalty, see Publication 510. File 2012 tax return Fuels Used in Off-Highway Business Use You may be eligible to claim a credit or refund for the excise tax on fuel used in an off-highway business use. File 2012 tax return Off-highway business use. File 2012 tax return   This is any use of fuel in a trade or business or in an income-producing activity. File 2012 tax return The use must not be in a highway vehicle registered or required to be registered for use on public highways. File 2012 tax return Off-highway business use generally does not include any use in a recreational motorboat. File 2012 tax return Examples. File 2012 tax return   Off-highway business use includes the use of fuels in a trade or business in any of the following ways. File 2012 tax return In stationary machines such as generators, compressors, power saws, and similar equipment; For cleaning ; and In forklift trucks, bulldozers, and earthmovers.

File 2012 tax return Fuels Used for Household Purposes or Other Than as a Fuel for Propulsion Engines You may be eligible to claim a credit or refund for the excise tax on undyed diesel fuel or kerosene used for home heating, lighting, and cooking. File 2012 tax return This also applies to diesel fuel and kerosene used in a home generator to produce electricity for home use.

File 2012 tax return How To Claim a Credit or Refund You may be able to claim a credit or refund of the excise tax on fuels you use for nontaxable uses.
