Hey [fname], as it's tax season here are the 2014 OCONUS rates with the latest revisions & additions.  They have changed from last years

 2013 rates so make sure you use these rates.

As usual if you have any trouble deciphering the table on page 4 or figuring out how to apply the rates when doing your taxes, let me know.

Because I'm a pilot & a CPA we prepare the tax returns for many pilots and flight attendants so we are very knowledgeable and proficient in the area of airline expenses.


I'll also mention that we also prepare taxes for non-flight crew folks too and although we 'flight crew' often have more complicated tax returns, I put together a consumer awareness guide of sorts I call the Tax Preparer Hiring Guide - 12 Do's, Don'ts and Questions to Ask BEFORE hiring a Tax Preparation Individual To Do Your Personal Taxes.

You can click here to download it (it is a PDF file) and it is a quick overview on how to choose a tax preparer.  No froms to fill out, just click the link to open & read it.


Also if you're interested I recently held a webinar on the different tax law changes that went into effect in 2014 that will impact your taxes & you can listen to a replay of it at this link:



Back to the OCONUS rates, 2 years ago I recorded a 22-minute VIDEO that explains in depth OCONUS rates and how they apply along with some insider / flight crew situations:


You're welcome to listen to this replay but just keep in mind that any math examples for the rates for a specific trip have probably changed since then although the formulas are the same.

As always if you have any questions please call the office at 704-552-8689
