How do you calculate Federal excise tax on air transportation?


 

Transcript:

When federal excise tax applies, it is charged at 7 and a half percent of the amount that needed to be paid in order to receive the air transportation, but only for the portions of the flight that occur over the United states, or certain smaller areas surrounding the United States. There is also a $4 pay passenger fee per domestic segment, and for international trips there is a head tax of about $18 for each person arriving or leaving the United States.
