Fixed Wing Use Tax Eliminated

Sales tax on fixed-wing aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul, including parts and service, was eliminated with the signing of ACT 52 by Governor Corbett on July 9, 2013. ACT 52 amends the Pennsylvania Tax Code, section 204 (69), and becomes effective 90 days after signing. The newly-adopted sales tax exemption language in the Pennsylvania tax code reads as follows:

"The sale at retail or use of aircraft parts, services to aircraft and aircraft components. For purposes of this clause, the term "aircraft" shall include a fixed-wing aircraft, powered aircraft, tilt-rotor or tilt-wing aircraft, glider or unmanned aircraft."

We are pleased that this legislation has been adopted and this newly-revised tax policy will provide the foundation for the creation of new, private sector, family-sustaining jobs in the fixed-wing aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) industry.
