German tax authorities have recommended truck drivers keep a log book for the tax office of how much time they spend in the bathroom.
The Suddeutsche Zeitung newspaper said authorities recommended the 1.5 million truck drivers in the country keep records of how often they go to the restroom and how long they spend on the toilet, so they can accurately determine how much of their income should be written off when their taxes are calculated, The Local.de reported Tuesday.
Uwe Rauhoft of the NVL , a group representing income tax advisers, criticized the scheme as "a ridiculous, costly process."
