(i) TRANSFERS AND CONTRIBUTIONS TO NEW CORPORATION OR PARTNERSHIP
395.1970 Purchase of Aircraft. A taxpayer purchases an aircraft from an unrelated party with the intent to utilize the aircraft in the chartering business. After inspection and refurbishing of the aircraft the taxpayer intends to transfer the aircraft to a newly formed corporation in exchange for all of that corporation's shares. The taxpayer holds a valid seller's permit and purchases the aircraft from a person who was not required to hold a seller's permit by virtue of its sales of aircraft.
The taxpayer did not purchase the aircraft for resale but rather for the purpose of transferring it to a commencing corporation in exchange for stock. This is a use subject to tax. The subsequent transfer of the aircraft to the new corporation solely in exchange for first issue stock of that commencing corporation, with no other consideration, is not a sale subject to sales or use tax. 7/27/92.
