You shouldn't be paying sales tax on your Comcast internet service. Federal law forbids taxes on internet service. Do you have basic TV service on your Comcast account to qualify for a lower rate for internet service? That would be taxed.
Oh yeah I forgot I have phone service also my fault

Makes a little difference sometimes, I am near a state border and the states have slightly different sales tax rates, Costco being in the higher of the two, and a nice little midsiz BB in the cheaper of the 2, and I do comparison shop.

I always thought it was a joke to see this as a line item on the bill anyway. If the first receiver is really free, than it's free....period. What's with the fake charge and then the credit? It should either not be on the bill at all or simply say Primary receiver - $0.00. Any other receivers on the account would each show the $6 mirror fee plus taxes.
I suppose by leaving the charge and credit on there, they can simply take away the credit in the future and start charging everyone for the primary receiver. Just another slick move to increase the price your paying without raising the package prices.....

my bill went up $5.48 which includes the $2 Lakers fee, will probably double next year to add the Dodgers fee.
