An AOPA-supported amendment that would have prevented the repeal of an exemption for aircraft and aircraft parts sold in Massachusetts from the state’s five-percent sales and use tax was defeated in the House on April 28. AOPA members have been contacting their legislators, asking them to keep the exemption and explaining the economic benefit it has brought to the state’s general aviation industry. “The fight now moves to the state senate, and AOPA is working aggressively to convince senators to remove the repeal from the governor’s budget,” said Greg Pecoraro, AOPA vice president of regional affairs. “We’re calling on the help of our members once again. Please contact your senator, and tell him or her to preserve the aircraft sales and use tax exemption.”
