Before you try and make that argument, remember the IRS lacks of a sense of humor and that fraud involving the fuel tax credit is considered a frivolous tax claim and can result in a penalty of $5,000
But I don't think our returns with Line A of our Schedule C reading Landscape/Lawn Maintenance would pop a flag.
They are saying in that article that "normal" people are claiming off highway use when they are infact using the highway.
We were audited in 2008 for 2005-2006 and the off road credit was not even an issue
