Aviation Excise Tax Holiday under the CARES Act – Form 720 Federal Excise Taxes

What is the aviation excise tax holiday?

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), enacted on March 27, 2020, provides an excise tax holiday that suspends certain aviation excise taxes. The excise tax holiday began on March 28, 2020 and will end on December 31, 2020.

During the excise tax holiday, no tax is imposed on kerosene used in commercial aviation, and normally taxed pursuant to I.R.C. §§ 4041(c) or 4081. The CARES Act applies only to kerosene used in commercial aviation during the excise tax holiday, rather than the sale or removal of kerosene during the excise tax holiday.

The excise tax holiday also applies to the taxes normally imposed on amounts paid for the transportation of persons and property by air under I.R.C. §§ 4261 and 4271.
