Race Team Receives Sales Tax Exemption On Company Airplane

Company Assisted In Tax Case By Aero & Marine Tax Professionals

SACRAMENTO, CA: Aero & Marine Tax Professionals, (http://www.aeromarinetaxpros.com/), an aircraft and marine tax specialist company in northern California, recently helped a race team receive a sales tax exemption from the California Board of Equalization on the purchase of a Piper airplane.

An executive from the company stated: “We have a race team and we needed transportation back and forth to the various tracks. There are a few tracks that don’t have commercial airports nearby, and our business schedule made the private plane a way to let us have the most time possible at the track before we had to get back to work. A couple of times we also had a couple of our team members with us. It was actually easier to have one airplane than multiple airline tickets.”

“Our first airplane sales agent recommended Aero & Marine Tax Professionals to us. When we contacted them they were very professional and efficient. The whole process was no problem. They set us up with a whole list of things we needed to do from start to finish. Their office staff prepared everything and guided us through the process. When we got to the end of the period, their staff packaged everything up for the California Board of Equalization. I would most definitely recommend them to others! I actually wish we had known about them before we bought our boat! We’ll definitely be back with them when we get another aircraft,” concluded the executive.

Tom Alston, Founder and Owner of Aero & Marine Tax Professionals, stated: ”We are getting more and more referrals coming from CPA’s because they know about the specialization we have in the field of legally supporting a claim for an exemption on the purchase of aircraft and vessels. It is best for anyone who is considering an aircraft purchase to involve us from the beginning. That makes it more likely that the client can avoid paying sales tax.”

Aero & Marine Tax Professionals shows purchasers 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.
