Lower Your Taxes on the Phone

Disturbed by how much you pay in taxes?

When trying to reduce their taxes, most people focus on their federal and state taxes.

While that is a good idea, there is another way to stop paying many taxes- a way that has nothing to do with the IRS or April 15.

Have you ever considered all the taxes you're forced to pay on utiltiy and phone bills?

Check out your recent phone or cell phone bill- look at all the taxes! The city, state and federal government all feel they have a right to make you pay them for having a phone. If you have a second phone line for data purposes, the taxes likely exceed the cost of the line.

Most people merely sigh and unhappily pay these taxes, thinking there is nothing that they can do about them.

Remember that you are paying those taxes with hard-earned money that you have already been taxed on once. This is essentially double taxation!

Add up those cumulative taxes, month after month, year after year. You are unnecessarily paying is a lot of money! Eliminating all those taxes could save you several hundreds, if not thousands of dollars over time.

Now, you can eliminate virtually all those taxes on your phone bill.

The answer is digital phone service or VoIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol). This is using a broadband (high-speed) Internet connection for the regular phones in your home. You don't have to sit at the computer with a headset on. You use the phones you now have. The difference is that the signal is now carried over the Internet to the other person's phone.

This also eliminates need for the regular phone company.

The good news and savings is that the Internet is not taxed. There are usually just a few ($2-3) dollars a month taxes on VoIP service, but it is far less than what you are paying on your traditional phone service.

You'll also save because most VoIP services cost much less than regular phone service. They also include free almost every feature imaginable that the other phone companies charge you separately for as add-ons.

You will also have free long distance with VoIP.

89% of U.S. households are broadband capable, so they could easily try VoIP. Even if you upgraded your Internet from dial-up to broadband to try VoIP phone service, you would still be ahead on savings. The cost of the broadband plus VoIP service likely will be less than you are now paying for your old phone service. This way you would gain high speed Internet for essentially free.

A few VoIP providers also have the added capability of using a video phone on their service. Imagine actually seeing your loved ones or business associates when you talk to them on the phone. You can have all this for less cost than traditional phone service.
