3% federal tax on cell phone bill originated in 1898

The 3% tax that you pay monthly on your cell phone bill originates 107 years ago during the Spanish-American War. Wait.. you say.. you got to be kidding. Sorry kiddies. No joke I’m afraid. Three federal courts have deemed this tax illegal, but until Congress repeals the tax, it’s here to stay. So write to your Congressmen/women and tell them you’re sick and tired of paying for something that shouldn’t exist anymore.
Crazy isn’t it. The three percent is a luxury tax on phones during the 19th century. You know it’s a luxury when you can buy them at Walmart too.
Scary. Truly frightening.
