Telecommunications is one of the four most highly taxed industries in the U.S.

As a result of deregulation, convergence and a variety of technological, regulatory and economic factors, federal, state and local taxes and other impositions are growing. There are currently a wide-variety of federal, state and local taxes, including sales, use, excise and transaction taxes, 911/E911 fees, and other “tax-like” regulatory fees applicable to communications services and products.

The FCC’s Truth-in-Billing rules: The FCC has created a webpage to assist consumers in understand their rights in addition to
taxes and fees. Please review FCC: Understanding your bill and FCC: Regulatory Fees.

State implications vary individually for each state and by service address. Please visit your respective state public utility commissions, state legislatures, county and city governments for detailed information.
