Georgia May End AvFuel Tax Breaks, DL Dismayed

Mon Mar 02, 2015 1:39 pm

The Georgia legislature has introduced a bill to end the AvFuel tax breaks for all airlines. Obviously, DL is most affected by this. How will DL respond?

Quoting bjorn14 (Thread starter):

FWIW the bill hasn't even been sent to the house floor for a vote.

This has happened at least once before if not twice and it didn't even make it to the floor.

IMO it makes it to the floor only to get voted down. (and i really don't think Deal is going to sign it anyways)

Delta is strongly encouraging it's employees to speak to our representatives opposing the bill. Business as usual.

Richard opposes taxes on DL but is in favor of those on other transportation. Why is that surprising? Sounds like typical business and politics to me.

Let's get our facts straight.

- Aviation fuel is NOT taxed anywhere in the world when the fuel is taken on for a commercial international flight.

- Only in very few countries is aviation fuel taxed for domestic flights. These are mostly 'green' nations found in Europe.

- In the USA, as of 2011, aviation gasoline (used to fuel General Aviation) is taxed at 19.4¢/gallon.

- Also in the USA, "kerosene for aviation" is taxed at 21.9¢/gal, unless it is used for commercial aviation. As commercial aviation is subject to federal transportation tax, airlines are subject to a reduced fuel tax of 4.4¢/gallon.

Any additions to this info anyone?

It was United and American that set up fuel purchasing offices in an Illinois county with lower tax rates than Cook County (Chicago). They were still paying tax on jet fuel but not at the higher rate they would have paid in Chicago. The practice was permitted under Illinois Law according to the airlines.

"Besides saving the differential between Chicago's 9.5 percent sales tax rate and Sycamore's 8 percent, the airlines receive a combined rebate of nearly $14 million annually from Sycamore on sales taxes collected on fuel purchases, the RTA said. Sycamore retains about $500,000 annually, according to the RTA."

Thanks for the historical perspective. Those "temporary" tax breaks do have a nasty habit of becoming permanent.

This is how big business operates nowadays. Blackmail your local government into as many subsidies as possible. Why outcompete your rivals when you can have the government help do it for you?

... except that, as already mentioned, Delta really has very little leverage with which to "blackmail" anybody since Georgia politicians know - or should know - that the realistic probability of Delta actually moving its headquarters, let alone its largest and most important hub, somewhere else is essentially zero. It ain't gonna happen - fuel tax break or no fuel tax break.

Quoting factsonly (Reply 13):
Let's get our facts straight.

- Aviation fuel is NOT taxed anywhere in the world when the fuel is taken on for a commercial international flight.

Any additions to this info anyone?

The Chicago Convention governs the treatment of fuel already on board an aircraft. The treatment of fuel loaded on to an aircraft is governed by a large number of bilateral Air Service Agreements (ASA's) which exist between countries, and also between countries and third countries. These usually contain a clause to the effect that both fuel in transit and fuel supplied in the territory of the contracting parties are exempt from fuel taxes. It is, of course, possible that the existing ASA's be renegotiated to remove the exemption for fuel supplied on the territory of the contracting parties.

I dont have every single ASA committed to memory, so I cannot say with absolute certainty that your statement is correct. The problem with taxing the fuel uplift is that airlines can simply tanker fuel in, and bypass paying tax or reduce it. It will distort the tax burden to long haul flights.

Since subisdies are difficult to police in the first place and even more difficult to prove/disprove; having an "acceptable cutoff" is even more complicated to enforce. So, why even bother with whining about subsidies? I would say make subisidies acceptable accross the board; let the airlines who want subisidies take it and those who don't want let them not take it. Let the airlines compete and survive with good management, route network etc. Even with subsidies lousy airlines will be lousy airlines.

Once the person is caught with a hand in the cookie jar the number of cookies the person is trying to steal (scale of subsidies) doesn't matter.

Interesting column in the AJC here. Richard, clearly, isn't well liked in the legislature from the comments in the column. Guess all that political activism is coming back to bite him...

State Rep. Earl Ehrhart of Powder Springs, the Republican behind the push, insists that conservative policy is his only motivation. “A tax exemption should not be permanent. And right now, Delta can’t make a case to have an exemption,” Ehrhart said, pointing to the airline’s $2.8 billion profit in 2014.

Oh, but there’s so much more to this rarest of moves – an overt assault on a state’s largest private employer. And much of it has to do with Delta’s recent history, under CEO Richard Anderson, of weighing in on public affairs – on both a state and national level.

“Every time he opens his mouth, he makes my job easy,” Ehrhart contends.
