Tax Alert by the Taxpayer Association of Oregon,
The City of Keizer is considering passing a cell-phone tax this December, just in time to spoil your Holidays and to do their part in extending the recession. The Taxpayer Association of Oregon helped put out a postcard alert and was quoted in the Keizer Times as saying “These cities need to balance their budgets with what they have in. There’s no sense in trying to punish a small group of people and their telephones to fix their spending problems.”
Also, the City of Portland maybe tinkering with a cell-phone tax as well (see article here) as stated by the Pacific Technology Alliance. Count these cell-taxes as another risky, unfair and economically harmful tax that voters will be burned about.
