IRS Travel Deductions

Hello Everyone:
I live on the west coast and work 28/14 on a GOM OSV.

I asked my CPA if I could deduct the cost of my travel betwen home and work. She said nope cause Fourchon was my Tax Home :confused:
I was hoping someone here would say, heck ya you can just look at the IRS Transiting Seaman rules.



Prior to our client’s Marin Johnson Tax Court decision, many tax preparers believed the “tax home” for merchant mariners was your ship – thus [U]no[/U] travel deductions. [B]Wrong[/B].

I’ve been using this guy since 2000, saved me many thousands of $$.
