Accounting for Aircraft Owners

The IRS requires that aircraft owners maintain detailed flight and passenger records on all flights throughout the year. You’ll need to account for the purpose of the flight, how many people were on board, where it went, and how many miles were traveled.

Proper business use of an aircraft is the key to claiming operating losses and depreciation deductions on your taxes without raising a red flag to the IRS. In general, if your aviation business gets classified as a hobby by the IRS they won’t allow you to take any losses. To satisfy the IRS, your business needs to treat this activity like a standalone business including separate bookkeeping, financial data, and budgets. We understand how to manage this documentation and will help keep it organized and up to date so your business is able to claim as many deductions as possible at the end of the year.
