Does the credit work for taxes and fees charged on United award ticket over $100?

Do I need to reselect the same airline every year or it stays the same as last year if I don't do anything?

It does stay the same as last year's selection. However, some folks have reported that it reset for them so I recommend that you go into your account and check.
