NOTICE: Extension of Tax Exemptions for Sales of Parts for Refurbishing Certain Aircraft

  • June 23, 2021


SUBJECT: Extension of Tax Exemptions for Sales of Parts for Refurbishing Certain Aircraft

Act 2012-185 of the 2012 Regular Session of the Alabama Legislature provided a tax exemption
for the gross receipts from the sale of parts, components, and systems for refurbishing certain
aircraft. The exemption was clarified by Act 2013-196 of the 2013 Regular Session to include a
conforming use tax exemption. The exemption was scheduled to expire on May 30, 2022, unless
extended by the Legislature.

Please be advised that Act 2021-28, which became effective on February 10, 2021, removed the
sunset provision for the sales and use tax exemption on these aircraft parts, components, and
systems. Therefore, the sales and use tax exemption as defined in §40-23-4(a)(48), Code of Ala.
1975, is extended unless amended or revoked by an act of the Legislature.

If you have any questions regarding this notice or the sale of aircraft parts, please contact the
Sales and Use Tax Division at the address or telephone number shown below:
