 Michigan House Proposes New Telecom Tax - by Steven Titch - The Heartland Institute
The Michigan House of Representatives is considering a bill that would levy a "public safety" surcharge of $1.35 on all phone bills to fund a variety of law enforcement-related programs.
That means if the bill passes, Michigan consumers and businesses can expect to pay an additional $1.35 per month on each landline and wireless phone line they, their family, or their employees use.
Because the Michigan telecom tax would be regressive–everyone, regardless of income, will pay the same amount--critics say it would disproportionately affect access of low-income consumers to the Internet and new telecommunications technologies, further widening the gap between telecom haves and have-nots.
