IRS Announces 2011 Air Transportation Tax Rates

by Leroy Baker, Tax-News.com, New York

31 December 2010


The United States Internal Revenue Service has announced the new rates of excise tax on air transportation, which will take effect on January 1, 2011, and which reflect 2011 inflation adjustments.

Excise taxes apply to the domestic segments of taxable air transportation and to the use of international air facilities. The Airport and Airway Extension Act of 2010, Part IV, signed into law on December 22, 2010, extends these excise taxes to air transportation that begins or is paid for no later than March 31, 2011.

For 2011, the excise tax on the domestic segment of taxable air transportation is USD3.70, unchanged from 2010, while the excise tax for 2011 for international flights that begin or end in the US will be USD16.30, up from USD16.10 in 2010.

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. For 2011, the international air facilities tax on these flights is USD8.20, up from USD8.10 in 2010.
