DALLAS (AP) -- The IRS is asking airlines to refund taxes to people who bought tickets before last weekend but are just now taking their trips.
Those travelers might be owed a refund because Congress let the taxes expire.
The Internal Revenue Service said on its website Wednesday that airlines can refund the taxes, just as they do when exchanging a refundable ticket that wasn't used.
But the airlines aren't required to issue the refund, and some are directing customers to the IRS.
More snow, freezing rain, sleet, and wind on the way.
