Maximizing tax benefits of aircraft ownership

Our mission is to offer unparalleled customer service by creating customized and creative aircraft ownership solutions that maximize the tax benefits available to aircraft owners while maintaining full FAA and IRS compliance.


We have been thrilled with the services of Aviation Tax Consultants. Daniel and his staff are extremely knowledgeable and helpful. They were instrumental in us quickly and efficiently setting up appropriate corporate structures for managing our plane and its business purposes. They have always been available to answer any question in a timely manner. When dealing with state taxing authorities, they always find the answer and have also represented us in queries. We highly recommend them.

I have dealt with multiple professional organizations over the last 45 years.  But only a few of them performed to the level of dedication, responsiveness, thoroughness, diligence, and customer focus that yours has.  Thanks again for your support.  Please pass along my appreciation for a job well done to all that helped me through this process.

As a first time private jet owner, I initially expected my business CPA could handle matters related to the aircraft and it was hard for me to justify hiring an Aviation CPA. Shortly into the transaction, I realized a specialist is well worth the expense. Within days of hiring Daniel and his team, they proved their value to me and saved me much more than the cost of their service. I suggest hiring Daniel and his team. They are true pros.

Over the past 10 years, the professionals at Aviation Tax Consultants have helped guide my company through the acquisition of a King Air C90B and a Pilatus PC12NG. Their guidance on structure, closing, use tax, SIFL rates, lease contracts, etc. was invaluable. I was fortunate to have these documents in order during a recent aircraft sales tax audit with the State of Michigan. I enjoy the Team at ATC and value their expertise. Thank you for a job well done!

Aviation Tax Consultants helped my partner and I navigate income tax planning as well as avoid sales tax on the purchase price of our 2015 Citation M2 in the state of Michigan. I am very glad that we called them when we did, as these issues would have been nearly impossible to deal with on our own. Their first-class service begins before you even sign on as a client, as they are willing to answer any questions that you have and give you an honest assessment of your tax situation. After we began working with ATC, they remained extremely available to myself, my CPA, and other staff. Whenever we had a question, we could call ATC’s office and be speaking with Fred, Daniel, or Jon within a few moments. I would recommend Aviation Tax Consultants to anyone making an aircraft purchase.

Whatever your needs are in regards to aircraft ownership and tax laws, Aviation Tax Consultants can help guide you. They have helped me successfully navigate California’s Sales and Use Tax codes with my last 3 airplane purchases. They provided detailed step by step recommendations of the documentation requirements and activities needed to achieve success. They saved me hundreds of thousands of dollars.  Aviation Tax Consultants is very responsive to your every question and need. They are truly there to HELP YOU whenever needed.

I have worked with the experts at ATC over the years and they have always done an outstanding job.   They have been attentive, responsive, and very organized during our aircraft acquisitions, income tax reviews, and even a difficult sales tax exemption issue, which was successfully resolved.  ATC has the knowledge, experience and expertise that I can count on.
