Maine Levies Big Taxes Against Instate and Out-of-State Plane Owners

The rules which come under the state’s use tax laws are not new, but this trend of applying them to planes has only been seen in the last three years.

Although the rules have had aircraft owners and pilots up in arms, they probably won’t be restricted to Maine. Florida and Washington too are looking to introduce such out of state taxes on aircraft.

Just what states in the U.S. need – another reason to convince travelers and tourists not to visit.
