    Other benefits are taxed, why not cell phones?

    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!

    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.
