In their May 2000 Tax Q&A column, Charles Blair and John McGill replied to a question pertaining to practice-management seminars held on private cruises.

I conduct such seminars and am aware of the "foreign flag" policy. My attorneys thoroughly researched the issue well before my first cruise set sail in 1990.

The criteria is as follows:

1. The seminar must meet for four hours per day to qualify as a day of write-off.

2. The course must not be available in the United States the year of the event.

I respect both Charles and John and diligently read their articles.
