Building Consulting Business Obtains Tax Exemption On Purchase of Columbia Aircraft
SACRAMENTO, CA: Aero & Marine Tax Professionals, (http://www.aeromarinetaxpros.com/), an aircraft and marine tax specialist company in northern California, recently assisted a building consulting company receive a tax exemption on the purchase of a Columbia aircraft.
An executive from the company stated: “We’re in a building consulting business and we do work all along the west coast. We’ve now opened up shop and are doing business in Utah and Idaho also. Opening up shop in Utah and Idaho with very remote locations precipitated the aircraft purchase. It is simply much easier to get to places like Cedar City or St George, Utah directly than it is to take a commercial flight to Las Vegas and drive two hours to get to such places. We started this process well over a year ago. We were in a pre-purchase state with two or three partners. One of the dealers we were working with recommended Aero & Marine Tax Professionals.”
“It seemed fairly simple at that point in time. I think they pre-evaluated whether we could get the exemption or not, and when I described to them what our mission was for the airplane, they felt confident that we could get the exemption. The experience was pretty seamless. I very rarely actually talked to them, but they sent me information whenever I needed and I sent the information along on time. It just seemed seamless, and it made my job easier. I would recommend them to others, as a matter of fact we were originally going to do this with partners, though we did this purchase by ourselves. But the partners know about Aero & Marine Tax Professionals and I’m sure that they’ll be one of their first calls if they do decide to go forward.”
Aero & Marine Tax Professionals CEO, Tom Alston, stated: “We’re very pleased the case went well. After we assess a case to see if a tax exemption is possible, if all looks affirmative, then the rest is pretty downhill. We stay up-to-date on all of the California aircraft tax codes and regulations so we know with each client how to avoid sales and use tax legally on the purchase of an aircraft.”
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.
