Connecticut lawmakers preserve aviation tax exemption

Less than one week after AOPA urged Connecticut members to contact their legislators and tell them to oppose Senate Bill 1385, which would have repealed several tax exemptions, including a sales and use tax exemption on aviation service, sales, and equipment, the lawmakers killed the bill.

AOPA had written the legislature, explaining that the bill would have a negative impact on aviation business in the state. And AOPA Northeast Regional Representative Craig Dotlo was in direct contact with legislators.

"Adopting this bill would have been a step backward for the state," said Greg Pecoraro, AOPA vice president of regional affairs. "We're pleased that the Connecticut legislators understood the potential impact of that measure and upheld the current law that provides tax exemptions for aviation."
