Fox 25 in Boston reports that even though Kerry may have docked his yacht in Rhode Island to avoid the 'sails tax' -- he may still be owe back taxes in the Bay State:

Kerry may still be on the hook for a half million dollars in excise taxes because he docked his yacht in Massachusetts less than six months after buying it.

The controversy came up following a report that Kerry moored the multi-million dollar yacht in Rhode Island , rather than the Bay State to save on sales tax.

A spokesman for the senator says Kerry never intended to evade taxes and kept the boat in Rhode Island for maintenance reasons.

In the meantime, Kerry really doesn't want to talk about it:

When asked "Did you berth the boat in Massachusetts?" he replied, "That depends on who owns it."

Then, he said to his driver, "Can I get out of here please?"
