    I just noticed on my bill the last 2 months that I have been charge a small amount for taxes. I have never had taxes before, odd it just showed up. I called customer service and they said they didn't know what was going on. Anyone else in IL have this issue?

    Not sure of the percentage but yes very low. State tax 44¢, Local 7¢, and County 2¢

    I think I figured it out, it looks like I am paying taxes only on the box monthly rental fee. Odd that they just started with me 2 months ago. Anyway, Merry Christmas!

    If that is the case they are only charging me the tax for one of my 7 receivers. $7.00 * 6.25% (IL state tax) = 44¢.

    I think local taxing entities are now enforcing laws that they were lax on. I've noticed ebay is charging tax on most orders where it used to be only companies with a local presence.
