325.0000 INTERSTATE AND FOREIGN COMMERCE—Regulation 1620
(a) IN GENERAL—SHIPMENTS INTO CALIFORNIA FROM POINTS OUTSIDE STATE
325.0003 Aircraft Used Exclusively in Interstate Commerce. A corporation purchases an aircraft that was first functionally used in interstate commerce outside California, entered California in the course of such use, and was then used continuously in interstate commerce while in California. However, several trips were made from San Jose to Long Beach Airport for purposes of service and maintenance. On these trips, only the crew members were on board.
If the sole purpose of the intrastate flights was to transport the aircraft to Long Beach for service and maintenance, the flights would not prevent the exemption from use tax based on exclusive use in interstate commerce. 3/17/92.
