Aero & Marine Tax Professionals Helps Transport Company With Procuring Tax Exemption On Hughes 500D Helicopter

SACRAMENTO, CA: Aero & Marine Tax Professionals , a professional tax firm specializing in sales tax exemption for aircraft and marine vessels in California, has helped a northern California transport company obtain a sales tax exemption on the purchase of a Hughes 500D helicopter. The sales tax exemption was awarded by the California Board of Equalization.

An executive from the company stated the following regarding the sales tax exemption: “The reason we needed the helicopter was to expand our business. We weren’t willing to pay the sales tax, but we had never filed for the exemption before on any of our helicopters. We found out that it was a very involved process. The potential tax liability was about $50,000. Because of their promotion and the thought of paying the sales tax, we found Aero & Marine Tax Professionals. They have been really helpful and it’s really good news to hear that this exemption happened. We would recommend them to others. And in the future, we plan to call them prior to starting the purchase cycle of any new helicopters.”

Tom Alston, founder of Aero & Marine Tax Professionals, stated: “Company after company who we’ve taken on as clients have discovered the same thing: you need to call your tax consultant prior to starting the purchase cycle on an aircraft. If you’re even contemplating purchasing an aircraft then you need to call your tax consultant. It saves a lot of hassle and it is smoothest when you involve us right from the beginning. And you need to work with someone who is really aware of all the ins and outs of avoiding sales tax on the purchase of an aircraft. That’s us!”

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.
