Cell phone excise tax unfair, illegal

November 16, 2013
The Inter-Mountain

Do you have service with U.S.Cellular? I do.

I am charged a monthly fee for local excise tax. I checked with the city of Elkins, and it was confirmed that they charge this tax on cell phone customers in the city limits of Elkins. I do not live within the city limits of Elkins. U.S Cellular will not do anything to correct this or refund amounts already paid.

I also checked with AT&T. They also have an administrative fee billed to customers. They confirmed that it is in fact, this local excise tax! They will not drop the charge if I sign with them.

Who benefits from this illegal tax collection? Check your monthly bill.
