My bill runs between $60.00 to $80.00 per month on average, depending on if I order any PPV's and/or WWE PPV Events... Thats not to bad, but when you start figuring in taxes on this stuff.... I thought your business had to be in the state of residency in order to tax someone. For example, I get SuddenLink High Speed Internet in North Carolina, there head quarters is in California just like DirecTV, and they dont charge me taxes... So whats up with that? Is there some kind of FCC law that says they have the right to tax for TV... I get taxed for everything, I even get taxed for the shipping and handleing fee's when I order new receivers, etc. Not that it is a big deal, But I estimate approximatly $100 per year of my money goes to DirecTV taxes. Anyone have any insight?
