House Caps Mobile Taxes at 16.3%

The U.S. House of Representatives has approved a five-year freeze on any new state and local taxes targeted at cellphones and other wireless services, including wireless broadband access. 

Wireless customers now pay 16.3 percent in taxes and fees, more than double the average rates for other goods and services. 

Supporters of the legislation say states increasingly have taxed wireless mobile services as they have become more prevalent, and that most states now impose taxes that far exceed average sales taxes on other items. House OKs lid on cellphone taxes
