CTIA Statement After the U.S. House of Representatives Passed the Wireless Tax Fairness Act

After the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Wireless Tax Fairness Act (H.R. 1002), which would place a five year moratorium on any new discriminatory taxes and fees imposed on wireless consumers’ monthly bill, I released the following statement:

“On behalf of the 300 million wireless customers in the U.S., CTIA applauds the Wireless Tax Fairness Act’s lead sponsors, Representatives Lofgren and Franks, who worked tirelessly to get the bill approved in the House. Today’s vote is a crucial step toward providing wireless subscribers with some much needed relief by putting a five-year freeze on new, discriminatory taxes and fees on their monthly bills. In light of the challenging economy, we hope the U.S. Senate moves swiftly to pass the companion bill.”
