Registration in South Dakota (cost savings)

I've heard from a couple of people that you can register your vehicles in South Dakota to skirt around our outrageous Kansas sales tax and the yearly property sales tax. Has anyone done this or have any tips/words of advice?

The analogy is registering a car in New Hampshire to avoid sales tax (6.25%) and excise duty ($25/$1,000 of value) in Massachusetts.
Sure you can do it, and I am sure some people do, but it is illegal.
Furthermore, your insurance may well be invalidated if you do not accurately represent where you keep/garage your vehicle.
On the other hand, if you have residences in both states it depends which is your "primary" residence.
I see Florida plates here in Massachusetts all the time.
I am guessing they avoid MA taxes by claiming a primery residence in FL, though that is almost certainly a scam.
