NATA, NBAA ASK FOR MERCY FROM IRS ON FUEL TAX

No title Under changes recently enacted in Congress, the Internal Revenue Service can collect an additional 24.4 cents per gallon in taxes on Jet A aviation fuel, apparently due to concerns that highway operators are avoiding taxes on diesel fuel by buying Jet A to burn in their trucks. Thus, aviation users, unless they are buying the fuel under certain circumstances that are not yet clearly defined, must also pay the extra 24.4 cents and then apply for a refund. If it seems a bit like guilty till proven innocent, well, the National Air Transportation Association (NATA) and National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) don’t like it either. They’ve asked the IRS to delay implementing the tax changes until the whole process is clearly explained.
