Wisconsin: New Exemption for Aircraft, July 2014
- Jun 20, 2014 | Gail Cole
New sales and use tax exemptions for aircraft will soon take effect in Wisconsin.
Beginning July 1, 2014, the “sales of and the storage, use and consumption of parts used to modify or repair aircraft are exempt” from Wisconsin sales tax.
Also beginning July 1 2014, “charges for the repair, service, alteration, fitting, cleaning, painting, coating, towing, inspection, and maintenance of any aircraft or any aircraft parts” will not be subject to Wisconsin sales tax.
Please note that exemption certificates are not required for these exemptions to be valid.
The exemptions discussed above do not apply to supplies used to operate aircraft. These include, but are not limited to:
- Deicing fluids;
- Engine oil;
- Hydraulic fluid; and
Examples of the difference between the old law and the law that takes effect July 1 are available on the Wisconsin Department of Revenue website, on the New Sales and Use Tax Exemptions for Aircraft page.
