Corporate pilots could find Indiana a friendlier place to refuel under a change in state tax rules that could save them hundreds of dollars.

Indiana began exempting aviation fuel and maintenance and service work on planes from its 7 percent state sales tax this month. It has substituted a flat 10 cents-per-gallon excise tax for fuel purchases.

Tom McCord of Tom Wood Aviation tells The Indianapolis Star (http://indy.st/13p494z ) the changes could increase business for the 68 airplane maintenance shops around the state.

McCord says the tax change gives Indiana a competitive advantage for fuel sales and repairs.

Airplane owners say they welcome the tax relief.
