IRS: 2010 US Air Transportation Tax Rates Announced

by Mike Godfrey, Tax-News.com, Washington

31 December 2009


The US Internal Revenue Service has announced 2010 inflation adjustments to the excise taxes on air transportation.

Excise taxes apply to the domestic segments of taxable air transportation and to the use of international air facilities. The Fiscal Year 2010 Federal Aviation Administration Extension Act, Part II, signed into law on December 16, 2009, extends these excise taxes to air transportation that begins or is paid for no later than March 31, 2010.

These excise taxes are adjusted annually for inflation, and for 2010 are as follows:

  • The excise tax on the domestic segment of taxable air transportation will be USD3.70, up from USD3.60 in 2009.
  • The excise tax for international flights that begin or end in the United States will be unchanged at USD16.10.
  • The tax on use of international air facilities also applies at a reduced rate to departures of interstate flights that begin or end in Alaska or Hawaii. The international air facilities tax on these flights will be increased to USD8.10, up from USD8.00 in 2009.

Further details on the excise taxes on air transportation can be found in Form 720, Quarterly Excise Tax Return, and its instructions.
