Illinois’ Obnoxious Cell Phones Taxes
January 31, 2013 § Leave a comment
Illinois was fifth in a ranking of extra wireless costs, the Tax Foundation said, with the user paying an average of about 21.8 percent in additional federal, state and local taxes and fees. Only callers in Nebraska, Washington, New York and Florida pay more.

I was just talking to someone about this the other day. Ya know, if you move your “address” out of state you can avoid some of these fees. With paperless billing does it really matter where the company sends (or doesn’t send) your bill?
I’m sure people who live in Indiana or Wisconsin burn plenty of minutes across the border. Seems like a reasonably solution to me.
