An executive from the company stated: “I’m in the TV production business, and I do a lot of TV production throughout the states of Nevada, Arizona, California, and New Mexico. The locations we film at are primarily places that commercial airlines just don’t go to. We just couldn’t do it in a commercial setting.”

“The experience with Aero & Marine Tax Pros was incredibly simple, professional, and most importantly, successful! Everything went smoothly, their staff was in constant communication and updating what I needed to do each month to get you the documentation. I would absolutely recommend Aero & Marine Tax Pros to others. I would actually make the argument that anyone that does not seek out and find these services is making a mistake, and then not specifically using Aero & Marine is making a secondary mistake. A lot of pilots think that there is only one way to get out of having to pay the California state taxes, and that is that you have to base your aircraft in another state for 12 months. They’re not aware of this intra-state tax exemption route, none of the pilots are aware of this option. It’s getting the word out that you don’t have to leave your plane out of the state for a year.”

Aero & Marine Tax Professionals is a pre-eminent tax firm specializing in aircraft and vessel purchases. The company helps individuals and corporations avoid paying California sales and use taxes when buying an airplane or vessel. Their unique knowledge and expertise has resulted in regular referrals from attorneys and accountants throughout the nation.

Tom Alston, owner and founder of the company, stated “We want people to be aware of the consequences of dealing with the California Board of Equalization, because in many cases a person who may have been expecting a sales tax exemption finds they do not qualify. When a client follows our instructions to the letter, we can guarantee that sales tax exemption on the purchase of an aircraft.”

Aero & Marine Tax Professionals shows purchasers how to avoid sales 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. His blog can be seen at
