Cessna Plane Exempt From California Sales Tax Due To Efforts Of Tax Specialists Firm

SACRAMENTO, CA: Aero & Marine Tax Professionals, (http://www.aeromarinetaxpros.com/), an aircraft and marine tax specialist company in California, recently assisted a southern California real estate business in obtaining a tax exemption on the purchase of a Cessna airplane.

Richard, an executive from the real estate company stated: “The business problem we were trying to solve with purchasing an airplane at the time was being able to find properties. I needed to be able to be on my own schedule, and go to communities that might not have a commercial airport but did have a private airport. I have purchased a few aircraft along the way, but had never pursued an exemption since those aircraft were for personal use. This one was a more expensive airplane and it met the criteria with the business use for me to not have to pay the California use tax. I found out about Aero & Marine Tax Professionals through an email. So I followed the information that they gave me, and their follow-up was great. In the end it was all worthwhile, as the BOE awarded me the sales tax exemption. When I called I always got the information I needed. Both of us were busy, but we got it done. I would most definitely recommend Aero & Marine to others.”

Tom Alston, founder and owner of Aero & Marine Tax Professionals, stated: “If you do not seek a sales tax exemption when it is possible, you will end up paying a large chunk of money to the state that could have been avoided. We find that many companies who contact us do not know that you can legally avoid sales tax on an aircraft purchase. Those who have worked with us and received a sales tax exemption know better.”

Aero & Marine Tax Professionals shows purchasers 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.
