IF VoIP isn't a phone service then will all the charges/taxes disappear?
From my last US Vonage bill -
U.S. and Canada 750 for 1-(919)-338-xxxx (24/Jun-23/Jul) $19.99
Vonage Extensions for 1-(919)-360-xxxx (24/Jun-23/Jul) $0.00
International Calls for 1-(919)-338-xxxx (24/May-23/Jun) $16.66
United Kingdom Virtual Phone Number for 44-(207)-993-xxxx (24/Jun-23/Jul) $4.99
Taxes & Fees
Regulatory, Compliance and Intellectual Property Fee $1.99
Emergency 911 and Information Services Fee $1.99
Federal Program Fee $5.06
State Telecommunications Sales Tax $3.55
State 911 Fee $0.60
Total Amount $54.83
So for my $24.98 in services and $16.66 in call charges I paid $13.19 in taxes and fees, because it was a telephone.
I assume that if it is no longer a telephone then none of the listed taxes and fees apply, although there will probably be some sales tax rate applied.
Looks like a win to me.
