State Tax Guide for General Aviation released

Conklin & de Decker has released its new 2013 State Tax Guide for General Aviation.

Packed full of critical tax information, the State Tax Guide is a reference tool for helicopter and fixed-wing operators, accountants, dealers, brokers, aviation law professionals, and others. The State Tax Guide contains the latest taxes and fees imposed on general aviation in all 50 states and it addresses the sales and use taxes applicable to aircraft sales, ownership, leases, parts, and labor.

States continue to make changes that affect how their taxes apply to general aviation and it is expected that in 2013, many more states will try to find ways to “enhance their revenues,” company officials said.

The Conklin & de Decker State Tax Guide provides subscribers continuous updates throughout the year by downloading the latest changes, as they occur, from the Conklin & de Decker website.

Newly added features in this year’s State Tax Guide include a new tab created to access “Credit for Taxes Paid to Another State,” additional hyperlinks in the “Contact Sections” and a new export function that enables you to export a file to PDF or Excel. In 2012 a “Resale/Dealer” tab was added.

Included in the State Tax Guide are common exemptions from the state sales and/or use taxes such as common carrier, occasional sales, fly-away and trade-in credits. Applicable registration fees, personal property taxes, jet fuel and even aviation gasoline taxes are also covered. In addition to tax data, contact information for the Departments of Revenue and Aviation in each state is also included. The State Tax Guide is PC based and has the ability to compare three states side by side which enables users to quickly compare tax rates and exemptions for the selected states.

A one-year subscription is $375 and is downloadable from the Conklin & de Decker website. In addition, the subscriber receives downloadable updates throughout the year.
