MyWireless.org® used Tax Filing Day 2007 to call for “tax freeze” moratoriums to be placed on all new federal, state and local wireless and Internet access taxes. Bi-partisan legislation placing moratoriums, on both wireless and Internet access taxes, has been introduced in 2007 in both the U. S. House of Representatives and Senate during this current session of Congress. Last year, the average tax burden placed upon America’s 235+ million wireless consumers had climbed to over 17% on average in taxes, fees and surcharges per monthly bill. Recent polling data shows that 93% of wireless consumers are extremely happy with their services and choices, and don't want their state or the federal government meddling with regulations in a marketplace that works for them. Tax Day presents an appropriate occasion to call upon all wireless users to contact their elected officials in Washington to ask for their leadership on these important consumer issues. ##
