You have a floating domicile and you are responsible to space-a yourself to wherever the company wants you tobe.
The company should pay to get you to a "floating domicile". If they expect you to get there by jumpseating as official policy, the the company is violating the Jumpseat agreements they have negotiated. Jumpseating is reserved for personal use by the pilot's choice. While the pilot can certainly use it to go to work by HIS/HER choice, the company can not direct it on other carriers.

Do they expect you to "space A" on company aircraft only? The company could build that into your schedule, but that would be work days under 1 in 7 calculations.

From the little information here, seems like the company may be running afoul of 1-7 and FAA duty requirements, IRS and state taxing authority, and OAL Jumpseat agreements.

What kind of outfit is this?

Kalitta used to play that game in the early '90s with their domestic operation. They also used to tell pilots sitting reserve that hadn't had any duty in six days that their 1/7 had happened already since they weren't assigned, and that they hoped they enjoyed it.

Until the FAA put a stop to it. Maybe somebody needs to make an anonymous call to a FSDO.

Total dirt bag outfit.

Wrong.

You are taxed based on your home of record with one exception. California can take income taxes based on the amount of flying you do within the state. At my airline, I was LAX based but never paid a penny of CA income tax because I did NO intraCA flying.

I was trying to make the point that if they have a floating domicile, then they have to be essentially changing your work location. While your home of record may not change, your tax domicile can change with what they are doing. This has implications on what is deductible and what isn't.

Ask a MLB player if they pay taxes in every state they play in--they do, regardless of their home of record.

They are not baseball players they are airline pilots. You might want to look at the relevant tax code.
