Aviation Company Obtains Tax Exemption on Purchase of Cessna 182T Airplane

SACRAMENTO, CA: Aero & Marine Tax Professionals, (http://aeromarinetaxpros.com/) a tax firm specializing in aircraft and marine vessel tax consulting, recently helped an aviation company, Lagusker Aviation, LLC, obtain sales tax exemption on the purchase of a new company plane. The California sales tax exemption was granted by the California Board of Equalization, (BOE) on the company’s newly purchased 2005 Cessna 182T.

An executive from the company stated: “We’re in a business looking for rental properties in areas outside of California. Mainly the growing areas of Las Vegas, Phoenix, El Monte & San Antonio. If we were using commercial, I would have to book far in advance and then figure out how to actually get from the big airports into the neighborhoods and have a lot of logistics problems. Having my own airplane gives me the flexibility and lets me fly on my own schedule. I can fly to very small airports right next to the properties that I wanted to check out. The logistics are so much simpler. I was referred to Aero & Marine Tax Professionals by one of their prior clients. It was so smooth. They told me exactly how to go about it. What paperwork I needed to keep, what receipts to keep, and what exactly I needed to do to make sure I crossed all my T’s and dotted my I’s for the auditor in Sacramento to go through with a fine tooth comb. Everything to make sure that I would not get a denial. I have already recommended them to another, and I will continue to do so.”

Tom Alston, founder and owner of Aero & Marine Tax Professionals, stated: “We were very happy with the outcome for this client. All of the proceedings went very smoothly and the transaction as well as exemption came off without a hitch. We look forward to working with them again if they decide to purchase another plane.”

Aero & Marine Tax Professionals shows purchasers how to avoid aircraft sales 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.
