CTIA and our members have been advocating for the Wireless Tax Fairness Act, which would place a five year moratorium on any new wireless taxes and fees. On average, wireless users across America pay more than 16% in taxes and fees while the average for other taxable goods and services are 7%. In November, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Wireless Tax Fairness Act. Bob Bolster, Director, Government Affairs talks about the coordinated efforts to get the bill passed in the House and what’s next as it moves to the Senate.
