Tax Man's Target: The Mobile Phone - WSJ.com
Ahh, those evil work cellphone users! Must be punished!
You just earned yourself a roving wiretap, you right-wing hatemonger!!!
Other benefits are taxed, why not cell phones?
before this bunch of damn dumb democwats gets done you will have a breath o meter tached to yer neck and will be charged with emitting co2 per every breath you take..
fair point regarding taxes, but then why are you such a tax loving citizen?
Who said I was?
Actually, hold up on the car wash.
This really isn't that bad of an idea. The law for this has been on the books for 20 years and wasn't enforceable. Think of the trillions of revenue we have lost that we should have been collecting the last 20 years!
Now, apparently they are adding teeth to it, making employers deduct the correct amount from your check. In 1989, when this law was passed, cellphones WERE a really expensive luxury item only CEOs and such had. Now most everyone has a work cellphone, look at the revenue this will generate!
Prolly gonna be a whole slew of people brought up on tax evasion charges now.
Rand was right...We're all criminals, we just don't know it yet.
dammit, i just did that which i earlier accused you of....
you asked a question as to why not cell phones....let me ask you, do you then support this tax proposal?
This isn't a new tax proposal. Its merely going to start considering cell phones as benefits, which they are. If a company gives something to you thats of value, thats a benefit. I see no reason why it shouldn't be taxed.
