You’re getting squeezed by taxes and fees, but it might be even worse than you think. A new study shows your wireless taxes and fees in Pennsylvania are the 8th highest in the nation at nearly 20%. That’s nearly triple what you pay in general sales tax on other taxable goods and services, and we think that’s outrageous.
You’re not alone, either. The average American now pays more than 17% in monthly wireless taxes and fees (up from an average of 16.26% in 2010, a 5.5% increase in just two years!).
Congress has a solution. It’s currently considering a freeze on any new state and local wireless taxes and fees for five years (the bipartisan ‘Wireless Tax Fairness Act’). The House passed this bill around this time last year, and there are only a few weeks left in this Congress for the Senate to pass its companion bill on behalf of the hundreds of millions of us who are looking for some wireless tax relief. It’s a no-brainer.
We need your help! Please write your Senator today and let them know how important it is to you that they pass the ‘Wireless Tax Fairness Act’ in this Congress!
