Very Expensive Sales Taxes Doubles Price of Unlimited Starter Plan w/4 lines

I was setting up and AT&T plan so I could estimate the cost to switch carriers, but the monthly charge advertised ($140/month + taxes and fees) seems to vary wildly because of a ridiculously high sales tax applied every month on every device (Please see the table below for reference)

Am I missing something or do AT&Ts hidden fees typically double the plan's listed price?

Line 4$30$58Free

Plan: Unlimited Starter = $140/month

Monthly Charges = $223

One-time Charges = $120

First Bill = $343

Due Today = $174.30

 are you getting phones also? if so thats sales tax on the phones only add them all together whats due today  is what the 4 taxes added together are plus an additional buck or so for some other tax this is typical of phones sales when you buy on the next program making payments on the phones tax is always collected for the full price of the phones

Yes, all lines are new phones and the tax is on each phone.. I didn't quite understand the rest of your reply though, could you clarify? Given that I am purchasing 4 phones to go along with the 4 lines, what is the monthly price going to look like? $228/month or less?
