Heli-Expo 2014 – Anaheim, California -- Conklin & de Decker announces the release of their 2014 State Tax Guide for General Aviation (“State Tax Guide”). Packed full of critical tax information, the State Tax Guide is a must-have 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 fifty 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 2014, many more states will try to find ways to "enhance their revenues". The Conklin & de Decker State Tax Guide provides subscribers continuous updates throughout the year by simply downloading the latest changes, as they occur, from the Conklin & de Decker website. This easy-to-use guide saves users valuable time by eliminating all the research hours required to stay current on all the latest tax changes.
Newly added features in this year’s State Tax Guide include the ability to sort and print the Update & Message Sections and as a subscriber, you are now able to access each state through the ”member’s area” with a mobile device, such as a smart phone or tablet. STG On-the-Go!
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 included. The State Tax Guide is PC based and has the ability to compare 3 states side by side which enables users to quickly compare tax rates and exemptions for the selected states.
“State tax laws change suddenly and can really impact your aviation operation,” stated Nel Stubbs, vice president for Conklin & de Decker and veteran tax consultant. “The Conklin & de Decker State Tax Guide for General Aviation is an indispensable tool where we do all the research for you and make it easy to access, saving you time and keeping you current on all state tax changes,” added Ms. Stubbs.
