Garth, you really have to ask a local tax man that, but if it's like most places, if you are in your home country, working in your home country, you'll have to declare it as you would any income. Most of the time, the breaks seamen get are when they are out of country more than a designated majority of the year, and that may or may not include home flagged vessels.
Right, the "Flight Home" may include vacation flights, and that is not covered under repatriation. Repatriation comes at termination of contract when it has been fulfilled or terminated by the vessel. If you quit, except under some circumstances where conditions go outside the allowances of the law, you are not owed repatriation. This is another reason why crew operating without a contract put themselves at risk.
There is a difference between a flight ticket after a year of employment and repatriation flight ticket. Repatriation is required by maritime law no matter what flag is on the stern.

Benefits can include new experiences, valuable sea time, geographical locations, financial stability and the achievement of private and professional goals. A great salary and benefits does not make a bad job better. If you are being paid an extraordinary salary be humble and never assume it will last forever.
For those who did not receive a plane ticket home or some form of repatriation, it is your own responsibility to learn your rights both under the ILO and under the flag of the vessel you sail on. This information is freely available to the public.
