Frequently Asked Questions

We've put together a list of the most frequent questions we receive. These questions are specifically about our tax, accounting, and bookkeeping services.

  • What services do you provide?
    We provide tax, accounting, bookkeeping, and consulting services to owner-operator truck drivers. We offer three levels of service - Rumblestrip Professional, Rumblestrip Essentials, and Rumblestrip Enterprise. Rumblestrip Professional (most popular) is designed for owner-operators who want bookkeeping, accounting, tax, and consulting services. Rumblestrip Essentials is for owner-operators who have been in business for a while but want efficient and convenient back-office solutions. RumbleStrip Enterprise is for those owner-operators who are ready to take the next big steps in growing their trucking fleet and need a complete back-office solution to support it.
  • What if I just want my taxes filed?
    We offer a stand alone tax preparation service where we will complete and file current or prior year State and Federal tax returns on your behalf.
  • Can ATBS file my taxes and my spouse's taxes?
    As a married taxpayer, you have two choices, Married Filing Jointly and Married Filing Separately. Generally, Married Filing Jointly will work out better for a taxpayer, but not always. ATBS can prepare the return both ways, and then provide you with them both to indicate the best tax outcome for you.
  • I want to incorporate my business, can you help with that?
    Yes, we can set up an entity for you at a one-time fee. There are several variables that are important to consider when setting up a business entity. Give us a call so we can determine your current setup and future goals so we can use our trucking industry expertise to help set up the right entity for you!

  • What type of drivers do you work with?
    Our services are designed specifically for independent contractors. It doesn’t matter if you drive through a lease-purchase program, are running as an owner-operator on your own authority, running as a sub-contractor, or are growing a small trucking fleet of your own, we will work with you.
  • What do I have to do as an ATBS client?
    All you have to do as an ATBS client is scan and send us your receipts, settlements, financial statements, and tax documents. ATBS will do the rest. With this information, ATBS will be able to provide you with monthly profit & loss statements, quarterly tax estimates, a completed Federal & State tax return, and advice on how to better run your business.
  • How do I send in my receipts and financial documents?
    Please send in receipts for all business expenses you pay out of pocket. DO NOT include meal and drink receipts as you will want to take the per diem deduction. You can send in your receipts and financial documents with our ATBS Mobile App (preferred), an email, fax, or by mail.
  • How do I access my profit & loss statements and quarterly tax estimates?
    You may access your Profit and Loss statements, Quarterly tax Estimates, and commonly used documents on the Secure Client Portal of the ATBS website. You’ll have access to this portal 24/7.
  • What carrier do you work for?
    We don’t work for any one carrier. We partner with multiple truck carriers to provide their drivers with discounts on our services. We don’t care who you pull for, we work for you, not the carrier.
  • Does ATBS have a Referral Program?
    Yes, you will be eligible to receive a $50 Amazon Gift Card for every new client that enrolls with us for at least 90 days. Learn more about the ATBS Referral Program.
  • Can I cancel the services at any time?
    Yes, you can cancel our services at any time. Services are rendered on a month-to-month basis. We don’t believe in long-term contracts that force you to continue using our services. We want you to stay with ATBS because you want to, not because you’re forced to.
  • Why should I choose ATBS over a regular tax company or another truck tax accounting firm?
    Owner-operators choose to work with ATBS over other tax and accounting companies for many reasons. We’ve been in the industry for over 20 years and have worked with tens of thousands of owner-operators. We study the tax code each year with owner-operator truck drivers in mind to make sure we are filing their taxes correctly and taking advantage of every legal tax deduction they are entitled to. In addition to just filing taxes and doing the bookkeeping, we offer business consulting services to make sure our clients are running their business as efficiently and profitably as possible. On top of this, the ATBS Mobile App makes it so that all our clients have to do is use the app to take pictures of their receipts and financial documents which get automatically sent to us. No other company provides the services we provide, at the cost we provide them, with the ease it takes to work with us!
