IRS Form 2106

Why is IRS form 2106 so important for flight crew taxes?

IRS Form 2106 is also titled Employee Business Expenses. IRS Form 2106 is the tax form used to report all of a flight crew member's aviation expenses.  It is required for all pilots and flight attendants who wish to take advantage of the per diem deduction. All of the aviation-related travel expenses and business expenses are reported on Column A of IRS Form 2106, while the per diem expenses (M&IE), are reported on Column B. Once completed, the total from the 2106 tax form is then transferred to a flight crew member's Schedule A, which in turn transfers (or reports) to the federal form 1040.
