We have been hard at work finding information for those who have been “Kappsized” by the IRS’ decision against certain aspects of mariner tax deductions promoted by Martin A. Kapp’s Sailor Tax service. Today we bring you Mariner Tax Expert James MacGuire.
James holds a masters in taxation from Northeastern University. His practice focuses on individual (particularly mariners’) taxation, general tax planning, financial tax and trust planning, estate tax planning, audit resolution and forensic accounting services. James operates side by side with noted estate and business planner Attorney Hugh J. Crossland of Crossland and Crossland P.C.; also of counsel to Graber, Davis, and Cantwell P.C.
James’ goal is to provide tax and tax planning services to mariners, paying particular attention to the planning aspects so often ignored. “The US Supreme Court has stated many times that a taxpaying citizen should only be liable for their fair share. We are allowed under the law to utilize every deduction legally available.” James enjoys big picture planning with clients – taking into account current and future goals to create a tax plan that follows the clients intended interests.
