Why should I use a tax preparer that specializes in flight crew taxes?
Pilots and flight attendants typically have more expenses than other professions because of the large amounts of traveling. Most tax preparers and accounting firms are unfamiliar with the intricacies of per diem deductions, flight crew travel expenses and deductions, and therefore they don’t take advantage of the many benefits allowed by the IRS.
WCG (formerly Watson CPA Group) is intimate with tax consequences of the airline and aviation community, and to ensure a comprehensive tax return for you we’ve developed a Flight Crew Expense Report to list all your pilot and flight attendant expenses. Please visit the Flight Crew homepage on our website to review the Flight Crew Expense Report.
