Company Assisted By Aero & Marine Tax Professionals in Recent Tax Case

SACRAMENTO, CA: Aero & Marine Tax Professionals, ( an aircraft tax specialist firm in Northern California, recently assisted a California real estate company in supporting a claim for a use / sales tax exemption involving the purchase of a Cirrus SR20 airplane. It saved them around $13,500.00 off the purchase price.

An executive from the company stated: “We have rental property and real estate in Nevada, going back and forth. Purchasing the aircraft was a lifestyle and time issue. Driving to Bullhead City is a nine hour experience. Flying there is two hours and fifteen minutes. It’s a quality of ownership, in a lot of cases. A flight instructor friend of mine recommended Aero & Marine Tax Professionals. There are things I could do with that money that are far more valuable to me than paying the taxes. I don’t feel that the state spends my money as wisely as I do. I measured all the different ways it could work out, based on getting the exemption, or not getting the exemption. It looked like it was a good financial decision to pursue getting the exemption. Working with Aero & Marine’s staff was awesome. I just followed the instructions they gave me, and every time they needed something I responded. Everything worked out exactly the way they said it would as long as I followed the instructions, and did things in the order that they recommended. The instructions were very clear and well put out. I had a couple questions, but they were always good at clearing them up. The original packet they gave me covered at least 95% of the solutions I needed. I would recommend them to others without question.”

Tom Alston, owner and founder of Aero & Marine Tax Professionals, stated: “The case went very smoothly, there were no problems in securing the tax exemption on the plane. It is completely legal to avoid paying tax on an aircraft purchase, when it is done the right way. But you need the guidance of professionals who know the tax codes backwards and forwards. If you’re looking at purchasing an aircraft, contact us.”
