Suspension of Excise Tax on U.S. Domestic Cargo Shipments    03/28/20

One of the provisions of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act, passed into U.S. law March 27, is the suspension of the 6.5% excise tax on cargo shipments transported within the U.S. This suspension is effective with air waybills issued from March 28, 2020 through December 31, 2020.

Tax on domestic U.S. shipments was previously auto-calculated in United Cargo's technology system, and the amounts appeared in air waybill records and on customer invoices. The excise tax on domestic cargo will not be calculated or collected for shipments on air waybills issued from March 28 through December 31.

The people of United Cargo thank you for your continued support during this unprecedented time.
