Your bill includes the 3% federal excise tax levied by the federal government that applies to all telecom services, not just local service. In addition, there is a 6.5% state tax, and varying local and/or municipal governments impose taxes on telecom services and, if applicable, these taxes are listed on your bill. These charges may appear as a “franchise” fee.
