James Maguire, owner, Maguire Taxes L.L.C. and Professional Tax Services is a graduate of S.U.N.Y. Maritime College . He sailed as an engineer for several years in the deep sea, great lakes, and coastal venues. James “see(s) the Merchant Marine industry as one of the last gilded trades. You literally can start off swabbing decks, and with hard work, become master of a vessel.” “I respect the facets involved because of my experiences as a mariner and my own upbringing.” James received his initial training in taxation from his father, Kevin Maguire, a noted tax attorney. He continues to advocate this applied instruction and learning both in business and as an adjunct professor of undergraduate and instructor of masters accounting and taxation at Northeastern University . “My training at S.U.N.Y. has helped me immensely. I’m able to convey ideas to students with a hands on approach they don’t often see. I’m tough, but the results speak for themselves.”
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 again and again 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.
