Aviation group wants tax exemptions in Ohio

May 28, 2019 GMT

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Aviation companies are asking the Ohio Senate to restore tax exemptions they say help them compete within the industry.

At issue are exemptions related to the sales of so-called fractional aircraft, or planes where multiple owners share the cost of purchasing and operating the aircraft.

The tax exemptions also affect aircraft parts and maintenance and flight simulators.

Gongwer News Service reports that the House version of Ohio’s $69 billion two-year budget removed the sales tax exemptions. Industry officials are now making their case to the Ohio Senate to restore them.
