Southern California Produce Company Gets Sales/Use Tax Exemption on Purchase of Beechcraft Baron Airplane
SACRAMENTO, CA: Aero & Marine Tax Professionals (http://www.aeromarinetaxpros.com), a tax consulting firm, recently assisted a produce company located in southern California to obtain a sales/use tax exemption from the California Board of Equalization on the purchase of a Beechcraft Baron.
A company executive, Mark Vestal, stated: “We needed the aircraft so we could be able to travel between growing areas in a timely manner. We are in the produce business, and we wouldn’t be able to do trips in one day on commercial airlines. With our own airplane we would be able to fly both to Arizona and inspect produce there and then fly to, say, Salinas in the same day to meet growers and shippers there. We saw Aero & Marine Tax Professionals advertised on the internet, so we called them up. We got a personal assistant from the company that helped us through the process. It gave a much better understanding of the tax liabilities and what needs to be done through this process, I actually learned a lot. We recommend them to others. It sure worked for us!”
Aero & Marine Tax Professionals founder, Tom Alston, stated “Many people who purchase aircraft aren’t aware that there are totally legal ways to avoid the sales/use tax on an aircraft, which can amount to between tens and hundreds of thousands of dollars. But equally unknown is the fact that you have to work with an expert from the very beginning of the purchase cycle, in order to be certain of getting an exemption.”
Aero & Marine Tax Professionals shows purchasers how to avoid sales/use tax, specifically how to avoid aircraft tax and vessel tax in California and to make certain the full value of their next aircraft, vehicle or vessel goes into their pocket–not the government’s. They have successfully filed hundreds of tax returns with the California State Board of Equalization. Mr. Alston has also published many articles on sales and use tax.
