The Government's Cut includes all government-imposed taxes and fees, and your effective government tax rate is calculated as the Government's Cut divided by Our Price. On January 24, 2012, the U.S. Department of Transportation introduced rules mandating that airlines hide government-imposed taxes and fees in the advertised fare, but we wanted to still make sure that you knew what part of your total price was going to us (Our Price) versus the governments (Government's Cut). We believe in transparency for our guests.
