Making phone calls in New Hampshire will get more expensive if certain tax-raising politicians in Concord have their way. The federal government already taxes us on our income, the state taxes us on our property, and, when we spend some of what is left over to pay our phone bill, we are taxed again by both. But this is not enough, say some representatives in the state capitol. They want to allow local government to add another tax to telephone calls—this time, to the wooden telephone polls, and the conduits that carry our conversations. Their plan is to shoot down House Bill 1416 which would allow this portion of a phone call to remain tax-free.
