Segregating your phone bill – a sample AT&T bill

19 Jan

Here below is a sample AT&T bill I found online – looks exactly like my AT&T  bills, but it’s from Texas.

Notice, on pages 2 and 3, you see various amounts attributed to  “City District telecom tax”, “City Telecom Tax”, and “Texas Telecom Tax.”   Here in California we call that “Utility Tax,”  or “Utility User’s Tax”.   City of Chico residents will see, “City” or “Local” or even “City of Chico Utility User’s Tax.”  A turd, by any other name, will still stick to your shoe.

I know, it’s seems like such a mess – but notice this bill makes it very clear that these charges are for “wireless” or cellular phones. All the charges are scrupulously separated, or “segregated”,  out.
