On September 15th, a Congressional subcommittee agreed to move forward with a new proposed Act that will put a moratorium on the addition of new State and Local taxes on wireless services. Co-sponsored by almost 200 members of Congress, and fully supported by the wireless industry, this Act seems to be one of the few issues that has gained widespread support in the 111th Congress. And, it seems likely that the Senate will pass the long-awaited repeal of the tax provision requiring cell phones to be treated as taxable benefits. The vote on this particular measure, which is part of a larger small business lending bill, could come as soon as Thursday, September 16th.
