Because of the tax laws enacted in 2018 an employee's work related expenses are no longer deductible in any industry. (There are certain states where we can still use the deductions: AL, AR, CA, HI, IA, MN, MS, NY). Even if you don't live in one of those states we still recommend that you use flight crew specialists to prepare your return because your per diem reimbursement on your W2 should NOT be considered taxable income. Even though there is no deduction for flight crew expenses this year you should still keep track of your overnights. Either fill out our flight calendar or check the box on the flight calendar that confirms you have kept these records to prove that your per diem reimbursement amount is not taxable. (If you work for SW they archive payroll reports after 3 months so please try to download those every month to keep in your files).
