While shopping for a new cell phone, I soon realized that none of the advertised prices include “applicable fees and taxes.” Being my frugile self, I decided to figure out how much these fees and taxes would add on to my bill. Would you beleive that many states are well over 20%!!! Holy smokes! No wonder they don’t mention this cost on any of their websites.
What really struck me, is the tax rates in popular domiciles for fulltime rvers. Notably Texas and Florida. Whooaa Florida 21.62%! I-Yi-Yi! If you have chosen popular states like Montana and South Dakota you fair a little better.
The tax rate is base on wherever your bill is mailed. So if you have parents or kids living in a friendlier state, you might consider sending your phone bill elsewhere. Heck, maybe they will even pay it ;) Just kidding of course.
Here’s the list to check for yourself:
I received an inquiry from a well known reality show producer this week and to Cooper’s continuing dismay, we have no interest in such a project. However, I know many of you would love this opportunity. She’s looking for families that are living the lifestlye- ya know, you are actually moving around in your trailer or rv ;) I’ve vetted the company and know that it’s not a scam. However, they would like to keep the company name under wraps publicly. Feel free to contact them at the email address below if you have any questions.
