570.0620 Government-Owned Foreign Airline. A foreign airline company, a public corporation formed and substantially owned by a foreign government, is liable for use tax measured by the purchase price of spare aircraft parts purchased outside California and shipped into California for storage and installation, as needed, where tax treaties between the United States and the foreign government grant no immunities from state use taxes. However, parts later transshipped to points outside for installation are exempt. It is immaterial that such parts, when purchased, were not specifically intended or earmarked for storage and installation in California. 6/8/64; 7/15/64.
