Who We Are

Fred McCarter

Fred was the founder of Aviation Tax Consultants, LLC (ATC), a business which utilized his many years of experience in tax consulting. After graduating from Indiana University with a B.S. Degree in Accounting, and spending a short time in public accounting, he started his first line of business specializing in property tax consulting. In 2003, he became aware of the need for specialized consulting for people who are purchasing general aviation aircraft and started Aviation Tax Consultants (ATC) to fill the need.

Fred passed away in September of 2022 after an 18 month battle with Glioblastoma, a rare type of brain cancer.   He is deeply missed by everyone at ATC and the family he loved so well.   Fred and his wife Lisa had 3 children and 4 grandchildren and Fred was their biggest supporter in any goals or dreams they had.   Fred was all about living life to its fullest. A lot of people dream about doing things; Fred DID them. His dreams included: being the owner of his own company, a private pilot, a race car driver, a football coach that took his team to many championship games, living on a lake, owning some hunting land, taking family trips, and traveling on hunting adventures. He achieved all these dreams and many more. 

We will continue to honor his legacy at ATC by working hard, playing hard, dreaming big and living life to its fullest.
