Default non profit airline tickets

Hi,
Is there a travel agent out there who knows if non profits don't have to pay taxes on airline tickets? No one seems to have heard of this.

Thanks,
Karen

Not a TA, but my brother is a minister who travels the world about 5 times a year on missions trips, he may know the answer to this since the church and his ministry foundation are NFP. I will see him in the morning and ask. I will post reply when I find out something.

Thanks so much! I can't believe that the big carriers customer service people have not come across this.

I work for a 501c(3) not for profit corporation. We still pay all taxes on airline tickets.

Thanks for the info. The accountant told my boss that she will not have to pay taxes and to bring the tax exempt number to the TA. Oh boy!

I wonder why it does not work for airlines.
