In FMG Leasing, LLC v. Dep't of Treasury, FMG Leasing was a limited liability company formed to hold title to an aircraft. No. 312448, 2014 WL 2931938 (Mich. Ct. App. June 26, 2014) (no reported citation available). FMG leased the aircraft to a concrete company that was one of FMG’s forming partners, and to the company’s president. FMG then sought to take advantage of a statutory exception under Michigan law that permits a lessor of tangible personal property to pay use tax on receipts from the rental of the property, instead of paying a sales or use tax on the full cost of the property at the time of purchase.

I previously wrote about the legal battle in St. Louis brought by Metropolitan Taxicab Commission (“MTC”) against the rideshare app company Lyft in the Circuit Court of the City of St. Louis, Missouri, Case No. 1422-CC0089-01. My comment can be found here. As I discussed, the court entered a temporary restraining order prohibiting Lyft from operating in St. Louis and St. Louis County. On July 14, 2014, the court again ruled in favor of the MTC, granting a preliminary injunction prohibiting Lyft from operating in the St. Louis area until a final decision is reached on the merits of the case.
