(a) IN GENERAL—SHIPMENTS INTO CALIFORNIA FROM POINTS OUTSIDE STATE
325.0010.750 Delivery of Aircraft in Oregon. A purchaser intends to take delivery of a jet aircraft in Oregon. From the delivery point in Oregon, the aircraft will be flown to Nevada during which the purchaser will perform at least three landings for purposes of obtaining certification as a pilot for the aircraft. The aircraft will not touch down in California on this flight. The aircraft will be based in Nevada for 91–100 days and flown to non-California locations during this time. The aircraft will be regarded as first functionally used outside California when the taxpayer flies it in order to obtain pilot certification. Therefore, if the aircraft does not enter California within 90 days after its purchase, excluding time of storage for shipment to California, use tax will not apply to the use of the aircraft in California. 8/13/96. (Am. 2006–1; Am. 2008–1).
(Note: For the period October 2, 2004 through June 30, 2007, under certain conditions any vehicle, vessel, or aircraft purchased outside of California and brought into the state within 12 months from the date of its purchase is presumed to be acquired for storage, use, or other consumption in California and subject to use tax.) (Regulation 1620(b)(5).)
