Perhaps you should get a wireless phone plan in Oregon?

Posted By on February 7, 2019


The 2018 wireless phone Tax Foundation report came out in December 2018 and although we may have seen income tax rates drop, wireless phone plans continue to be ripe for the taxman’s pickings. It is shocking to see such a wide rate structure from all the different states (map above) but that doesn’t tell the story of the year to year upward creep in total taxes paid. The average family "can expect to pay about $229 per year in wireless taxes, fees, and surcharges—up from $221 in 2017." Check out the chart below that show the year to year increases Americans are taxed for their cellphone plans … closing in on 20% on average (count your blessings if your plan is in Oregon … or even Ohio!)
