Steve Kahn lives and works in Massachusetts. He also keeps a private plane there that he sometime flies to Maine to pick up patients in rural areas and bring them to Boston, free of charge, as part of the Angel Flight program.

The Associated Press reports there's a growing effort by several states to collect sales and use taxes on planes that fly into those states, even when the planes are bought and based in other states.
