All U.S. based retirees will receive a paper W-2 Tax Form for 2018 at their mailing address on file with AA. It will be postmarked by Jan. 31, 2019.
The IRS now requires AA to report your income related to retiree travel on Form W-2. Imputed income is the estimated value of a trip that is added to your taxable income to comply with IRS guidelines. Trips are valued for imputed income purposes based on mileage for each segment flown.
Imputed Income applies to travel by registered companions, non-dependent children (up to age 24 yrs.), domestic partners and their children.
Imputed Income DOES NOT Apply to D3 Travel.
AA retirees residing in San Juan or the U.S. Virgin Islands do not pay
federal income tax. If the retiree goes to their profile in The Travel Planner, the coupon breakdown in the detail area shows $0.00 for federal tax and
that they are only charged for FICA.
If you have questions about your W-2 for imputed income related to travel, please contact the Team Member Service Center at 844-543-5747. For all other W-2 questions, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
