I don't know if it is an actual tax or for the tourist card...either way it's $10 cash each

You need to purchase a tourist card for $10 per person. It's provided by Canadian carriers (except one) but not from the USA. You can purchase it at the airport. Sometimes it takes 5 minutes, but if there are a few flights arriving at the same time, it can take much longer.

You can purchase it online at: https://www.dgii.gov.do/Tturistaweb/

If you have it, you can avoid the line and go straight to customs.

Yes, $10US entry fee per person. Cash only. There is a kiosk as you enter the terminal at the airport.

There is also a web site (that has had intermittant issues recently) where you can also purchase that entry visa in advance online and print out a pre-paid voucher.

There is also a $20 exit tax that you will read about, but don't worry about that as it is included in all airfares from the US. So only the $10 to get in.
