    If you have three phones, your bill is incorrect because "Federal Wireless
    Number Pooling And Portability" would have been $3.30.

    Well Steve, Tom's got a point. If you have three phones on the account, your
    FWNP&P tax should be $3.30. As is listed from my bill based on a 3 phones -
    2000 minute F&CA, Vision & PCS2PCS for $90.00. It's the old $85 plan with
    one free add a phone.

    Taxes
    Federal Tax
    $3.60
    North Carolina State Wireless 911 Surcharge $2.40
    North Carolina States Sales Tax - Service & Usage $6.90

    Surcharges
    Federal E911
    $1.20
    Federal Wireless Number Pooling and Portability $3.30
    Federal Universal Service Fund
    $2.52

    As to your taxes, it looks like you be bendin' over to pick up the
    proverbial bar of soap with regards to those local & state taxes.

    Re: Cell Phones taxes are nuts

    Here are mine:

    Taxes
    Federal Tax1.04
    Queens City Sales Tax - Services & Usage - 1.36
    (services and usage is what I'm paying SPCS $30 a month for)
    New York State Sales Tax - Services & Usage - 1.32 (same
    as above)
    New York State Wireless 911 Surcharge - 1.20
    Queens County Wireless 911 Surcharge - 0.30
    Surcharges & Fees
    Queens County Special Fee - 0.18 (what the heck is
    "Special Fee"?)
    Queens County Surcharge - 0.04
    Queens County Wireless License Tax - 0.61
    New York State Gross Receipts Tax - 0.12
    New York State Excise Tax - 0.77
    Federal Universal Service Fund - 0.69 (Universal Service
    Fund?)
    Federal E911 - 0.40 (Shouldn't this be included with the
    other two 911 surcharges? In the two years I have had SPCS service I've used
    911 twice)
    Federal Wireless Number Pooling And Portability - 1.10

    $9.13

    Has anyone in NYC ever looked at the taxes on their landline phone? MTA Tax
    Surcharge - what the heck is that? A surcharge is just another name for tax
    in my opinion so they're taxing you on a tax. And what happens if you're
    like me and never use th3e MTA anyway, you still have to pay for it. I
    thought the MTA was supposed to be a self-funded entity.

    how do you manage that? You never ride on any bridges, or travel through
    any tunnels? Are you also carefull not to do business with anybody
    who relies on the MTA?

    Well, here is what my bill "additional charges" looks like ... for two
    phones:

    Taxes
    Federal Tax 2.44
    Minnesota State Sales Tax - Services & Usage 4.93
    Minnesota State 911 Surcharge 0.80
    Minnesota State Deaf Tax Surcharge 0.26

    Surcharges & Fees
    Federal Universal Service Fund 1.72
    Federal E911 0.80
    Federal Wireless Number Pooling And Portability 2.20

    $13.15

    The formatting of your mail doesn't look like a cut-n-paste to me. Go back
    to the website and double check the item details.

    Re: Cell Phones taxes are nuts

    Steve, maybe you've already mentioned this, but what plan are you on now,
    and how many phones? I do remember that you said you had 3 phones, but you
    are only charged $2.20 for FWNP&P.

    I'm curious as those are some outrageous local taxes ... and appear to be
    based on the cost of your plan. If I had to deal with the cost of those
    local taxes, I'd be organizing a riot and a recall for all those politicians
    who agreed to it ...

    LOL, Folks,
    The MTA tax has NOTHING to do with the Metropolitan Transit Authority.
    MTA in stands for "Metropolitan Trading Area". As in the New York Market,
    Philadelphia/S. Jersey Market, etc.
