Time to Curb Increasing Wireless Taxes
On Monday July 29th, a coalition of center right organizations sent a letter to Congress urging support of H.R. 2309: Wireless Tax Fairness Act of 2013, which would implement a five-year freeze on any new discriminatory taxes or fees levied on wireless service by state and local governments.
Increases in wireless taxes make it more difficult for consumers to afford wireless and stunts the spread of broadband service. The five-year tax freeze would allow for restructuring of the telecommunications tax system in a manner that would not prove damaging to the telecommunications sector.
