DALLAS (AP) — Travelers who paid all federal airline taxes when they bought tickets might get a refund if they fly now, since the taxes have expired.
Airlines stopped collecting taxes that expired at midnight Friday. Several airlines said Tuesday that customers who paid taxes before but are flying now may be owed a refund.
JetBlue Airways tells customers flying in the next week to email their refund request to the airline — and put “Expired Tax Refund Request” in the subject line.
American Airlines says customers should direct their refund questions to the IRS.
