San Diego Meat Processing Plant Owner Gets Sales Tax Exemption for Yacht Sale
SACRAMENTO, CA: Aero & Marine Tax Professionals (https://www.aeromarinetaxpros.com) has obtained a sales and use tax exemption from the California Board of Equalization for their client, Rob J., in regards to his sale of a yacht.
Aero & Marine Tax Professionals are the pre-eminent experts in helping purchasers of aircraft and vessels to avoid paying sales and use tax in California.
Rob J., who runs a large, state-of-the-art meat processing facility in Vista, California, with markets across the United States and overseas, explains that he ran into trouble with the California Board of Equalization five years after he sold a Mikelson yacht.
“I had no problems at all until after I’d sold the Mikelson to focus on business and family. It was then, about five years after the purchase, that the California Board of Equalization told me I had not qualified for a Sales and Use tax exemption. They were billing me $31,000 for a boat I’d already sold! On the advice of the broker, I’d organized offshore delivery in Mexican waters, and left it there for a 90 day period. Even though I thought I’d covered all the bases, it just wasn’t working with the tax people. They disputed the delivery information; it was an argument I just couldn’t win. Eventually I called Mikelson company itself and explained the dilemma. Who did they recommend to get me out of the situation? There was no hesitation: they said Aero & Marine are the best.”
Tom Alston, president of Aero & Marine Tax Professionals, is familiar with Rob’s case. “This kind of slip-up happens more often than you’d think. That’s why we look after everything, right down to the smallest detail. In Rob’s case, it turned out to be a real simple thing, too. The company that did the delivery in Mexican waters had used the wrong form. That was it! We were able to get the paperwork right and fix the problem. Zero tax was payable.”
Today, Rob is thinking about Mikelson again. “You know,” he smiles, “Mikelson’s coming out with a 57 footer. If I do decide to go for it, Mikelson will be my first call. The second will be to Aero & Marine.”
