AFAIK-- you can "not" use GC  to pay tax on AA-- if anyone has been successful please post
I stand corrected. For some reason I had thought it was possible, but I just checked and you're right.

Taxes/fees on an AA award ticket do not count?
The correct answer is, YES!!!  :)

I used a credit for delta and paid the extra with my CC, it showed up as an additional collection. Anyone ever have something like this credited before?
