Tax officials are targeting corporate jets

DTax authorities in the United States are investigating a serious suspect: managers use corporate jets for their leisure activities but save on taxes by recording the excursions as business trips. Under US law, managers and shareholders must tax the expenses of personal travel on company flights as income.

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS), US tax officials, has announced that it will conduct three to four dozen audits this spring, targeting corporate jets and their users. The campaign is part of efforts by the tax authorities to crack down on suspected tax evasion by high income earners.

The 75 largest partnerships in the US will also be targeted. Lawyers and doctors have formed large partnerships in the United States.

The Internal Revenue Service says it wants to expand audits of high-income taxpayers, making historically low audits among wealthy individuals and corporations a thing of the past. “We are ramping up staff and technology to ensure that high-income taxpayers, including partnerships, large corporations, millionaires and billionaires, pay what they owe under the law,” the agency said.
