Company Gets Sales Tax Exemption for Purchase of Bonanza G36 Airplane

Sacramento, CA: Aero & Marine Tax Professionals (, has obtained a sales and use tax exemption from the California Board of Equalization for their client, Gary Belz, owner of several music studios called House of Blues Studios and owner of Victory Equipment Rentals, both operating in the Southwest US, on the purchase of a Bonanza G36 single-propeller airplane.

Gary Belz stated: “When we got the request from the California Board of Equalization, we discovered that we were not at all prepared with the right information, nor was it in the right format. In interviewing different consultants to help us straighten up this situation we found Tom Alston’s Aero & Marine Tax Professionals. Tom and his staff quickly organized us in searching for and finding all this information that we then forwarded to his staff. Then they put it together for presentation to the BOE. Working with Aero & Marine Tax Professionals was like joining a company, not just taking a service. I felt the personal touch of Tom, Jullie, and the others. It made me feel that I was being supported, rather than me having to hire somebody, and then me working for them, as is often the case with consultants. That was a primary thing, and I still feel there is a personal relationship. I would LOVE to recommend Aero & Marine Tax Professionals at any time.”
