Aero & Marine Tax Professionals Help Company With Sales Tax Exemption On New Plane
SACRAMENTO, CA: Aero & Marine Tax Professionals, (http://aeromarinetaxpros.com/) an aircraft tax specialist firm in Northern California, recently assisted a northern California crane and rigging company in supporting a claim for a use tax exemption involving the purchase of a company jet. It saved them around 9% off the aircraft purchase price.
An executive from the company stated: “We wanted the flexibility of flying to various customer locations and offices for the owner and his senior staff. The problem was just getting on planes, as opposed to flying commercially. There were a number of locations, such as Minnesota, Houston, Utah. These are all locations that we hit as a normal part of our cycle. The flexibility that owning an aircraft affords us was being able to go whenever we needed, in the comfort of your own plane. It just made it that much easier. We even were able to have business meetings in flight. The big thing was not being held at the mercy of timing at the airports – the flexibility of being able to go when you want. “…we found Aero & Marine Tax Professionals with the person that helped us acquire our first plane. He got us in touch with them to help us with the whole use tax process. It became very easy for us once we hired them, to work with their staff. It was easy to provide the documentation they needed to support the business purpose of the trips, whether they were in-state or outside the state. Aero & Marine was good at follow-up and documenting the process, pulling together the information they needed. The fact that they had been through it many, many times just made it easier for us. I would absolutely recommend them to others.”
Tom Alston, founder and owner of Aero & Marine Tax Professionals, stated: “The case went very well, the client was very happy with the outcome. Actually they’ve already informed us they are purchasing a second plane and will be hiring us to take care of the tax status of that plane as well. Those who have worked with us know that it’s important not to try and take the case into their own hands, they are not fully familiar with the California aircraft tax codes as we are. It’s our specialty, so people turn to us.”
