Cell phone taxes

Anyone here (especially you full timers, like myself) notice that their cell phone bill changes every month?? AT&T says it's because I move from state to state and therefore the taxes are different each month.

My "official" state of residence is South Dakota and I'd think that's the state in which I pay cell phone taxes. Shouldn't it??

WTF???

Boowho??

I would think the taxes only apply to the state where purchased. Sounds like a rip off. More AT&T crap. Would not have them. Later RJD

Mine does the same thing and my house never moves. We have unlimited calling/texting and have never gone over on data.

We use pay as you go. We use about $100 a year since it's prepaid it doesn't change for us.

Have you compared monthly bills? Where are the differences coming from?

There have been several stories on TV about cell phone bills and charges made and if you don't catch you keep paying. Later RJD

Have you looked at the totally CONVOLUTED bill from ANY vendor? Even the CS people have trouble figuring them out.

AT&T had better watch out..... I paid for my devices up front so have no contracts. I really like the service; they just can't (won't) tell me why the bill varies by up to $30 each month; so I may have to kiss them good bye

Well, the CS person hemmed an hawed all over the place and never did properly answer the question. Signed up for service in NV so I'd think all my state taxes/fees would be from that state; NOT where I happened to be when I made the calls.

You sa $30 of unexplained charges. Better be calling someone back and ask for a supervisor and have him explain and if he cant' then better remove or else you be moving on. May want to report to the FCC. At&T has confessed they can not explain some of the charges per a Tv news inquire. Later RJD

We have the family plan with our daughter in Kentucky. All taxes are in that state and our legal address is Florida. Been full timing since June 1st and no changes in the billing statement. Not yet anyway.
