@Fl_retire Not really an article but a forum much like this one. Lots of speculation but no real answer as to why taxes are so high, at least not that I saw.

Re: International Calls: Land, Water, Snow, Be Ready Before You Go

@sandblaster,

 

In addition to the $10 fee for International Day Pay other monthly charges may include applicable taxes, and federal and state universal service charges. Unfortunately, I don't think we really have a way of knowing what those fees might be - from location to location. That part is out of our hands.

 

Thanks,

Still 30% is extremely high. Verizon has a similar daily plan yet I’ve never seen anyone report rates that high. It suggests to me that the various taxes and federal and state universal charges are being charged differently by the two companies. That shouldn’t be.

Re: International Calls: Land, Water, Snow, Be Ready Before You Go

@sandblaster,

 

I definitely understand your frustration. Unfortunately, we really have limited information available on possible taxes, surcharges, and fees that might be added determined by federal, state, and local laws.
