Governor signs bill exempting airplane parts from sales tax | jacksonville.com

BRUNSWICK | Gov. Nathan Deal flew into town Friday and signed a piece of legislation at a place where it is expected to have some impact.

Deal signed House Bill 164, which exempts aircraft parts from state sales taxes, at Gulfstream Aerospace’s maintenance and repair facility at Brunswick Golden Isles Airport.

State Rep. Alex Atwood, R-Brunswick, who attended the signing, said he carried the bill in the House “primarily due to the aircraft industry we have here on the coast. Plus, I like airplanes a lot.”

Atwood said the bill will mean keeping some jobs in Georgia and attracting some new ones.

The bill focuses on industries like Gulfstream, which has a manufacturing facility in Savannah, but it will reach throughout the state, Atwood said.
