AOPA needs your help
supporting two House Bills for sales tax exemptions in Michigan.
I am writing you to support Michigan House
Bill 4350 and House Bill 4351.
This legislation could directly affect those of you who own aircraft
registered in Michigan.
Under the current
law, only aircraft parts that are used in the repair or maintenance
of general aviation (GA) aircraft NOT based or registered in Michigan
are exempt from the 6% state sales tax. This means that approximately
6,000 operable GA aircraft based in Michigan are rewarded by taking
their repair and maintenance business out of state. Ohio has had
an exemption for parts and maintenance since 2008, Indiana repealed
sales tax on parts and maintenance in 2013, and Wisconsin enacted
a sales tax exemption on parts and maintenance in 2013 as well.
AOPA supports this
legislation as it will promote GA maintenance business within Michigan
and provide our members who operate GA aircraft a fair and suitable
sales tax law. Michigan law already provides the exemption for all
GA repair parts and maintenance for out of state customers, it is
time to allow GA aircraft registered in the State of Michigan the
I am asking for your
