Whatever happened to THAT anyway?
So the federal government takes %10 of my H paycheck, off the top. Then the state takes their %10 cut then w/ what is left.....ANYthing I buy (except food) I pay %8.25 in sales tax.
Then all my utilities have some sort of taxes on them...local & state.
I mean that can easily add up to %40 of your income in taxes!!!
I just got my recent phone bill & %12 of it is TAXES & FEES! What the HECK is that?
Let's see what they are charging for shall we?
Federal subcriber line charge: $4.42

State regulatory fee: .03
Federal Universal Service Fee: .49
CA High Cost Fund Surgharge-A: .04

Now is it just ME or do some of these sound REDUNDANT?
I mean why are we paying TAX on 911?
& what's the difference between a CA High Cost Fund Surcharge B & Ca High Cost Fund B? Don't those sound like the SAME thing?
