The Justice Department rolled over and said they would repeal the excise tax that is added to everyones phone bill. It was originally added to the phone bills of rich folks that had telephones. The tax was to pay for ...are you ready for this...the Spanish-American War. Guess not too many people had phones in 1898. 108 years to pay for that war...I guess our grandchildrens grandchildrens grandchildren will have grandchildren by the time we pay for Iraq. Hmmm...
They haven't said how much they think each person will get...BUT (LOL - love that) they are going to make it EASY for everyone to claim it on their next tax return. Uh-huh and I'm the Easter Bunny.
