I think its the other way around a free ticket should not be charged these taxes but some airlines don't bother writing a separate tax algorithm for award tickets and just charge for all tickets the same taxes regardless of the irs regulations

So the IRS ends up getting the money or the airline?

I doubt it. If you have evidence of that, feel free to PM me.
an example is the approximately 6% luxury tax for premium cabins leaving Venezuela which aa doesn't charge on mileage tickets because 6% of 0 is still 0 while ba does charge it for travel on aa

hence the question of the legality of the tax that Singapore assess on award flights

Are the Singapore suites flights booked today for travel after December 7 ,like in march time, would you be able to book with points using the old rates? Or only travel from before December 7 can be booked with the lower rates ?

Presumably you could book with current rates, IF you can find availability.

So me and DW and lap infant are planning on travelling EWR-TLV.  We have enough Singapore miles for  two one-way ticket EWR-TLV.  The other miles will be from United for the other way  Right now for Singapore miles I only see one way that will be useful since no expanded availability .  The other way will be with United miles.  What I am not sure about is how to handle lap infant. if I book two one ways with different mileage currencies I might pay hefty lap infant fees?  whats the best way to do this?
