Good find brother!
I believe this is one of many taxes that have fulfilled their purpose yet we are still paying.
This thread/story should get some attention, unless people dont want to know about the 30 to 60 bucks you are owed.
Hmmm, Shouldnt we also get some interest on that money?

it sure sounds good............but

i doubt that 2% of the refunds, on the books, will axtually be paid out.
since there is always a catch

it could very well be that all those years i had a land line phone in our private residence thru one of those phone providers that have since been
merged or acquired...the account that had the taxes credited to your monthly bill is no longer in existence- and will be too costly to track down

when you moved, or switched to a cell phone account the older accounts
you had got swallowed up into the abyss of the corporate accounting beast
,,,,which swallowed up that tax money and was processed into executive Bonuses.

the bottom line is that the new 'incumbants' will get a notch on their political belt as tax cutters/ pork-busters...which may be technically correct, Yet not completely Truthfull,
as the 'tax rebate' will not materialize for most anyone but the big corporate operations that have maintained a unbroken record of the communication levee paid, plus have a staff of attorneys & accountants to substantiate their claims & get the refund/rebate

also, your supposed future savings from dropping the special tax will not be realized, as the communication providers already have in place and have increases ready to implement that will ammount to more than the tax reduction..............? just look at the charge for 9-11 service on top of your useage already

its all: hype-&-spin, smoke-n-mirrors, and a dog-&-pony show !!!

True true true.
Politics, left or right, is just like you say, dog&pony show.
There are a number of 'taxes' that have been levied to pay for various projects, from local to state to federal.
Once said project is paid for and completed the taxes almost never get rescinded.
This 'long distance tax' is just one that enough people started asking about when it appeared on thier phone bill.
If 'we the people' knew of all the other taxes, fees and surcharges that have been left on the books long after they should have been removed, we would probably be a little irate.
