Aero & Marine Tax Professionals Helps Client Secure Tax Exemption On Antique Piper Airplane
SACRAMENTO, CA: Aero & Marine Tax Professionals, (http://www.aeromarinetaxpros.com/), an aircraft and marine vessel tax specialist company, recently assisted an aircraft manufacturing company in obtaining a tax exemption on an older Piper airplane. The plane will go in the aircraft company’s museum, located in Victoria, Texas. Aero & Marine Tax Professionals represented the company before the California Board of Equalization (BOE) and assisted in preparing documentation for the case, which concluded successfully for the company in receiving an exemption on California state sales tax.
An executive from the aircraft manufacturing company stated: “The aircraft was one of the last of its kind, and I wanted to put it in my museum. It will eventually end up back in Pennsylvania. I got a notice from the California government wanting me to pay taxes on the plane. I didn’t receive it in California, and it was even outside California when I closed the transaction. Aero & Marine Tax Professionals were recommended to me by a friend of mine. The experience went pretty well from there. This wasn’t our first rodeo. As a matter of fact, it turned out that this airplane didn’t even qualify for the California tax to begin with, it truly was an exempt airplane. Rather than me fight with them directly, it was easier to have Aero & Marine do it. I would recommend them to others.”
Tom Alston, founder and owner of Aero & Marine Tax Professionals, stated: “This case was very interesting. It isn’t everyday we work with an antique plane like this. But in all other respects it was a standard case. We’re happy the company got its sales tax exemption.”
