Both the Coronavirus pandemic and the CARES Act waiving the 7.5% Federal Excise Tax are impacting jet membership costs and terms

(Updated Nov. 20, 2020) To say the past month and a half has been a roller coaster for private aviation would be an understatement.

March started with high hopes. A spike in requests from first-timers who wanted to get to second homes or relocate family members kept activity close to normal.

What happens to the Federal Excise Tax you prepaid for your Jet Card before the CARES Act?

What are the best strategies for Jet Card flying during the FET holiday

Updated April 6, 2020 @7:16pm

One point of the 880-page CARES Act is a waiver of the 7.5% Federal Excise Tax (FET). The holiday lasts between March 28 and December 31, 2020. It’s normally levied for domestic Part 135 flights, which includes domestic jet card trips. It was also applied to U.S. flights that start or end within 200 miles of the southern and northern borders.

You might naturally assume that you won’t pay FET for flights during the rest of the year. You would be wrong. It depends on your program. So, how does this impact you?

By far, most complaints I get are from buyers who didn’t do proper research or hadn’t thoroughly considered their needs before buying

That said, everyone’s needs are slightly different.
