The CARES Act provided temporary tax relief to commercial aviation, but non-commercial general aviation (GA) operators, most of which are small businesses, were not included. As Congress considers a fourth relief package, it is critical that fuel taxes paid by non-commercial operators also be suspended through 2020.
For GA to recover, we require additional relief to incentivize businesses to resume operations in the coming months. The suspension of the non-commercial fuel taxes will help reduce operating costs, provide longer-term relief, and is consistent with the policy for commercial aviation.
Please Contact Congress today and explain that fuel tax relief will help general aviation small businesses in their recovery.
