Should VoIP Be Taxed?
from the the-question-of-the-day dept
Well, lots of people have been talking about it, but Senator Lamar Alexander yesterday stated publicly that states should be able to tax VoIP system. The problem I have with this is that there seems to be no justification for this whatsoever, other than that states already tax telephone calls. In other words, this is a tax designed solely to boost state revenue – not because it creates some sort of expense that the state covers. It seems like the calls to tax VoIP are more because they can, and not because they should.
