refund of FF excise tax on international redemptions

refund of FF excise tax on international redemptions

  1. MikeSherman1957

    I have read in several places that the excise tax charged by the airlines when you purchase miles is refundable when the miles are used for an international redemption. However, I can find nothing that tells me how to apply for the refund. Has anyone done it or do you know how to do it? Thanks.
