Northern California Aviation and Investment Company Gets Sales Tax Exemption on Purchase of Cessna Citation XLS

SACRAMENTO, CA: Aero & Marine Tax Professionals (, a tax consulting firm, recently assisted an aviation and investment company located in Northern California to obtain a sales/use tax exemption from the California Board of Equalization on the purchase of a Cessna Citation XLS Jet.

An executive from the aviation company stated: “We replaced the aircraft we had before because this new aircraft has a longer range and more passenger seating. It’s much faster and simpler to fly ourselves corporate than flying commercial. We can get in and out much faster, and obviously we can get into airports that commercial flights can’t use.”

“Our experience with Aero Marine Tax Professionals was fantastic! I was a little concerned in the beginning, just because I didn’t truly know what documentation was needed. I thought we had good documentation. I would definitely recommend Aero & Marine to others. It was money well spent.”

Aero & Marine Tax Professionals founder, Mr. Tom Alston, stated the following: “We are dedicated to helping our clients reduce their tax burdens in the purchase of an aircraft or vessel. We’ve had clients who nearly lost their case with the California Board of Equalization merely for having their data in the wrong format and not including all of the requisite data in the process. But that’s when they called us, we worked with them and they obtained their tax exemption. We’re at your service.”

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