Expertise in Sales and Use Tax for Aerospace

In the dynamic field of aerospace, managing sales and use tax can be a daunting task. At DSF, we specialize in identifying instances where vendors may have overcharged sales tax. Our in-depth knowledge and experience in this sector enable us to effectively review your transactions and potentially recover significant funds that belong to your business.

Navigating the California Code Section 6380

California Code Section 6380 provides a critical tax exemption for aerospace companies. This exemption applies to the storage, use, or consumption of qualified property used in space flight. Our team at DSF has a comprehensive understanding of these exemptions and is adept at applying this knowledge to benefit your company. We ensure that you’re not only in compliance with the relevant tax laws but also maximizing your tax savings where possible.

We meticulously analyze your utility usage to ascertain if they qualify for tax exemptions, aiming to reduce your overall tax burden and enhance your financial efficiency.
