The Dale County Commission deserves kudos for unanimously approving the Aviation Incentive for Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul of aircraft in Dale County. This incentive waives all sales and use taxes on the refurbishment of aircraft (fixed wing and rotary) in Dale County. This incentive was approved to entice Commercial Jet to locate but it will now be available to all existing companies and any new company that locates in Dale County in the future. While much of our MRO activity is military related it is possible that some consider getting some commercial contracts here due to this incentive.
Dale County is the first county in Alabama to approve this incentive and is currently the only county with it on record. The State of Alabama’s taxes are already waived for MRO so with this incentive Dale County is on an even playing field with other states offering this advantage.
Thanks again to the Dale County Commission for their visionary leadership in approving this important incentive.
