Aviation Fuel Tax Revenues to Go Directly to Aviation

This is a static text. Maybe you want to add a tagline or a short message here?

MN Pilots Association Board Member Gregg Strathy has been working with the Minnesota Council of Airports (MCOA), and has provided the following communication from the FAA.  Please take a look and email us at [email protected] with any comments or questions.

Dear State Aviation Officials,

Today, the FAA issued its final policy on aviation fuel tax revenue (See Attached).  The policy states that proceeds from state or local taxes on aviation fuel must be used for airport-related purposes or for state aviation programs. This policy excludes taxes in effect before December 30, 1987.  The FAA will give state and local governments a transition period of three years to amend any state laws and local ordinances to comply with federal law.  State and local governments need to prepare and share an action plan with the FAA within one year that outlines how they will ensure that any funds collected from aviation fuel taxes will be used for airport needs. 

 The final policy is on display today at the Federal Register at http://1.usa.gov/1xciGxg, and a copy is attached for reference.
