For rentals in the United States, Puerto Rico, St. Thomas, St. Croix and Canada, when the renter chooses to receive miles in the American Airlines AAdvantage program or the Delta Air Lines SkyMiles program, the frequent flyer program surcharge/excise tax will be calculated based on the federal excise tax expense incurred by Avis when it purchases miles from American Airlines or Delta Air Lines. Under the tax relief act of 1997, all companies that purchase frequent flyer miles from airlines must pay a 7.5 percent excise tax on the cost of those miles (approximately 6 cents per rental day). The 7.5% FTP tax applies to all us states except Arizona, California, Missouri, Oregon and Wyoming.
