BA's cancellation admin fee is also unrelated to the tax component, though, and yet they will not charge it beyond the amount of the taxes, hence the OP's question. While I would agree that BA's approach is unusual and that it is more likely that the fee will be charged, it would be helpful to have confirmation from someone who has actually been through it in a comparable situation.
