Phone Bill Taxes

Hey all, check your cell and land line bills.

On my cell bill there is a $1.34 Federal Excise Tax. Home phone was $.63. It's not much but sure ads up year after year. Got a flyer with my cell bill explaining what this is. Basically it was a temporary tax to fund the Spanish/American war. Go here, http://www.mywireless.org/petition/?topicId=4575 to send out an email to your congressman/representative, etc and let them know to vote for a new bill that gets rid of this "temporary" tax from over 100 years.

God bless America
