The Hidden 17% Tax: Your Cell Phone Bill
My home state of Pennsylvania reportedly has a tax rate of 20%. I only use a prepaid TracFone that costs about $64 (including sales tax) and give 1,000 minutes. After three years of use and refilling the card (twice), there are still more than 2,500 minutes left - that's how little I use a cellphone. It is only turned on during long road trips. If it weren't for being able to track my credit card purchases and Internet usage, the Fed would know very little about my personal habits. Well, I suppose they can get my 2011 Jeep Patriot computer record, too.
