Off Shore Delivery is no Guarantee - Legally Avoid Sales and Use Tax

Off Shore Delivery is no Guarantee

In a recent ruling by an attorney for the State of California, a taxpayer’s purchase of a vessel was held to be taxable. This was done in spite of support that an off-shore delivery occurred and the vessel remained in Mexico and outside California for more than 90 days.
