The Facts: Delta Gets Smacked by Georgia for Its NRA Rejection

Delta was going to get a tax break on jet fuel, but then it decided to fight the NRA in an election year in Georgia.

When the state reassessed how it calculates and collects transportation taxes during the recession, Delta lost its perk.
