Iím curious why youíd need one? We lost just about every pilot deduction with the new tax laws.

Sorry, not a useful response.

Question about that...the way I was reading it we are still allowed to deduct our overnights but as long as itís the standard deduction and not ďcity by cityĒ. Is that correct?

Thatís actually relevant. Since we lost all job related expenses if youíre still itemizing finding a cpa with flight crew experience isnít really necessary. 80% of those who used to itemize are now taking the standard deduction anyway so having a cpa at all isnít really necessary.

Thereís an article about the tax changes in the front page of the Alpa website, that I couldnít fully understand. Sorry not as smart as the rest of my fellow pilots.
But thanks for replying.

the work deductions (such as you're mentioning) are still deductible in some states for state income tax. Check with your local CPA.

I've been using Airline Crew Taxes for years. They're based in Houston, but accept mail-ins, online submissions, etc.

I've been very happy with them.

They have a referral system, so PM me if you're interested and we'll both get a small discount.
