Which tax are you talking about?
Airlines sending me "We're in this together" emails.

Bruh, where were you when my suitcase weighed it 51.50 pounds?

Paying with certain cc's might get you 5% back, paying with cash gets me 30% ;)

Yes - with Cash and Points the tax is charged on the cash portion,
plus there is a CA occupancy fee of close to $50 at some hotels,
(and a nightly valet parking fee... $$$).
But no tax/charges when it's all points.  :)
