Shutdown Does Mean Tax-free Airlne Tickets
Parts of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) are expected to shut down at midnight today due to a Congress dispute to temporarily extend the agency’s operating authority.
The stoppage would put an estimated 4,000 people out of work for the time being as well as allow passengers to purchase airline tickets without any taxes.
FAA’s shut down would also cost the government around $200 million in airline ticket taxes per week; it will also stop $2.5 billion in airport construction projects.
According to the Associated Press report, airlines will continue to make flights.
