Cell phone tax hike in Danville

Providing further grist for the mill of the telecommunications tax reformers, the City of Danville is raising is taxes on cell phones AND the 911 tax, as reported here.

The telecommunications companies and some legislators are claiming that Virginia's localities charge more such taxes than in other states and the different tax rules in each jurisdiction may compliance a costly matter in Virginia. (Part of the response of the localities is that the local taxes are higher because of the budget shenanigans and unfunded mandates from the General Assembly.)
