GOPhone taxed at 17.76%

The taxes on my $45/mo plan tripled from $2.47 in March to $7.99 in April, which is 17.76%.  What gives?


Why am I not given any breakdown or explanation of what these taxes are so that I can verify that they are correct? Has anyone seen this documented anywhere?

Hi @dbsf2001 !


Thank you for reaching out to our Community Forums! We apply taxes, surcharges and fees to your AT&T wireless service based on rates determined by federal, state, and local laws. All of the appropriate tax information can be found by clicking on this link.
If you’re interested in finding tax information specific to your state you can click on this link. You may need to change the coverage area in the upper right area to match your actual primary place of use. The amounts shown are based on the highest fee/surcharge rates assessed in your state; your actual fees/surcharges may be less. In addition to the AT&T charges described, you will be billed for mandatory taxes and fees imposed by federal, state, and local governments on wireless subscribers.
Let us know if you have any more questions!
