In a further sign that the current administration of the Mat Su Borough is open for business and lifting the heavy hand of local government off of the people, they have repealed the Airplane Tax.

The Mat-Su Valley has the highest concentration of private airstrips and public airports in the nation. A lot of pilots have airplanes here and taxing them was singling them out over others. The borough doesn’t tax cars, or boats, or any other personal property so it was time to see this one go away.
