COLUMBUS, Ind. — A new state law that affects the costs for pilots and businesses operating aircraft could attract more business to Columbus Municipal Airport.
Indiana on July 1 began exempting aviation fuel plus maintenance and service work on airplanes from the state's 7 percent sales tax. In its place, the state substituted a flat 10 cents per gallon excise tax for fuel purchases for aircraft.
Supporters say the change gives Indiana airports a more competitive edge.
