Falcon 2000 goes auctioned due to evading import tax
One of nine Falcons 2000 seized in 2012 on charges of evading import tax goes to auction under the order of the Brazilian Federal Revenue Agency. In 2012, nine business jets owned and used by Brazilians were arrested because the aircraft were registered overseas to avoid the Latin American country’s aircraft import taxes of nearly 35 percent. Foreign-registered aircraft can remain in Brazil for up to 60 days without paying import duties. Today, the minimum bid for the Falcon is around 408 000 USD. That is less than half the sum of hangarage fees for all these years. According to photos in the auction catalogue, the Falcon shows gleaming cabin woodwork, leather seats, and a gold-plated lavatory sink, but there are some cautions as missing—logbook, engines, and airframe, among others—and that four tires are flat. The aircraft’s best value is as parts, said the appraiser, and once auctioned, it becomes legal in Brazil.
