I know they try to tax everything that moves and everything that doesn’t move too. Now they’re talking about cell phones. Do you know why? Because, with a country with just over 300 million people there are 292 million cell phone users in the United States.
A new study says the states are looking at putting more taxes on cell phones. The sales tax where I live is about 7-8%. If I look at the taxes paid on my cell phone it’s much higher than that.
Nebraska is worst in the country for cell phone users with the highest cell phone taxes. The combined federal, state, and local in Nebraska is just shy of 24%.
You want to know what they are going to tax next. Hold on to that phone.
