H.B. No. 3727

H.B. No. 3727


relating to the appraisal for ad valorem tax purposes of certain
commercial aircraft that are temporarily located in this state for
manufacturing or assembly purposes.
SECTION 1. Subchapter B, Chapter 23, Tax Code, is amended by
adding Section 23.1211 to read as follows:
In this section:
(1) “List price” means the value of an aircraft as
listed in the most recent edition of the International Bureau of
Aviation Aircraft Values Book.
(2) “Maximum takeoff weight” means the maximum takeoff
weight listed in the aircraft’s type certificate data sheet for the
lowest rated configuration or, if the aircraft does not have a type
certificate data sheet, the maximum takeoff weight target as
published by the aircraft’s manufacturer.
(3) “Temporary production aircraft” means an
(A) that is a transport category aircraft as
defined by federal aviation regulations;
(B) for which a Federal Aviation Administration
special airworthiness certificate has been issued;
(C) that is operated under a Federal Aviation
Administration special flight permit;
(D) that has a maximum takeoff weight of at least
145,000 pounds; and
(E) that is temporarily located in this state for
purposes of manufacture or assembly.
(b) The chief appraiser shall determine the appraised value
of temporary production aircraft to be 10 percent of the aircraft’s
list price as of January 1.
(c) The legislature finds that there is a lack of
information that reliably establishes the market value of temporary
production aircraft. Accordingly, the legislature has enacted this
section to specify the method to be used in determining the
appraised value of such aircraft.

SECTION 2. The change in law made by Section 23.1211, Tax
Code, as added by this Act, applies only to ad valorem taxes imposed
for a tax year beginning on or after January 1, 2012.
SECTION 3. This Act takes effect September 1, 2011.
