Aero & Marine Tax Professionals Assists Fishing Company Obtain Tax Exemption on Vessel Purchase

SACRAMENTO, CA: Aero & Marine Tax Professionals ( recently assisted a commercial fishing company in obtaining a vessel sales tax exemption on the purchase of a commercial fishing vessel. The California Board of Equalization (BOE) granted the sales tax exemption on the case.

An executive from the company stated: “We work in the commercial fishing business. I was unaware that I was going to get a bill for sales tax on the vessel. I thought it was going to be a simple form to fill out that would make it go away, but that wasn’t the case. I sought further advice, and that’s when I contacted Aero & Marine Tax Professionals. A friend in Santa Rosa referred me to them. He deals with maritime boat transfers and permits. Working with Aero & Marine was very precise. They needed information, and handled everything in a really precise way. The whole thing takes a long time, it’s a long procedure, but their staff gave me the precise information needed. I would most definitely recommend them to others.”

Tom Alston, founder and owner of Aero & Marine Tax Pros, stated: “We get so many recommendations because our reputation is built on success. We can take a case that others have pronounced hopeless and can turn it around so the client can end up legally avoiding sales tax on the purchase of a vessel. This was our first time working with this company. We’ll be more than happy to assist them if they purchase another boat for their operations. All in all it went very well.”
