Consumerscheapest ffxiv Gil may

soon get a guarantee that no new local and state taxes will pop up on their cell phone

bills over the next few years.

A House Judiciary subcommittee today passed the Cell Tax Fairness Act of 2009 (H.R. 1521),

which was first introduced by Reps. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) and Trent Franks (R-Ariz.). The

bipartisan bill, which now has 194 co-sponsor, would ban new state or local taxes on mobile

phones for the next five years.

Currently, cell phone consumers spend on average more than 15 percent in taxes on their

wireless service. This is compared with about 7 percent in taxes on other taxable goods,

according to Lofgren.

In a letter written early this year supporting the bill, the National Taxpayers Union,

which Final Fantasy XIV Gil

advocates for American taxpayers, claimed that between 2003 and 2007, taxes on cell phone

service increased four times faster than those imposed on other general goods and services.

"While family members are forced into paying more money, out-of-pocket, to communicate with

one another, these predatory taxes are often squandered on projects that have little to do

with improving the communications network," the group said in its letter.

The bill would not affect current taxes. It also wouldn't ban new federal taxes, nor would

it apply to fees that subsidize emergency 911 services and contributions to the Universal

Service Fund, which helps fund rural phone service and phone service for low-income

residents.

Instead, the bill is designed to curtail further increases in wireless taxes and fees in an

effort to encourage people to spend more money on wireless service.

"The Cell Tax Fairness Act does not take away any existing revenue for state or local

governments, FFXIV Goldit simply

calls for a period of tax stabilization," Lofgren said when the bill was introduced last

year.
