On-demand Air Carrier Aircraft Sales Tax Exemption

Concerning the creation of a sales and use tax exemption for an on-demand air carrier's aircraft.
2022 Regular Session
Fiscal Policy & Taxes
Bill Summary

For 7 years beginning on January 1, 2023, the bill creates a sales and use tax exemption for the sale, storage, use, or consumption of an aircraft used or purchased for use in interstate or intrastate commerce by an on-demand air carrier. An on-demand air carrier is an entity authorized by the federal aviation administration to operate an aircraft to transport people or property in compliance with the administration's certification and operations requirements.

The aeronautics division in the department of transportation is required to provide the state auditor with any available information that would assist the state auditor's measurement of the effectiveness of the exemption.

The bill specifies that a statutory town, city, or county may exempt the same items only by express inclusion of the exemption in its initial sales tax ordinance or resolution or by amendment thereto and also that the exemptions do not apply to the tax imposed by a special district or other limited purpose governmental entity.

(Note: This summary applies to this bill as introduced.)
