I would urge any business owner to read the fine print of the VISA and/or Master-Card contracts they have. Amongst the fine print in these contracts you may find that you can be penalized or your contract cancelled if you refuse to honor any card carrying the credit-card logo, regardless of which bank issued it.
You can certainly post a notice in your store that you prefer not to accept BofA cards at all, and denote why. But under the general terms of most VISA/MC contracts, you cannot charge any extra amounts for specific cards.
