I just got my bill and the tax was $9.03 it has always been just for the 2 lease receivers which is .35 f , so I called and they are telling me that GA just this month started doing the satellite tax and thats why its that much. I did a search on there site , where I was told to look but found nothing . Can anyone from GA confrim this

Just checked my bill and I have no such tax! That is very weird! I hope it isn't true that this is happening! Normally Directv will alert us on a special channel of such a tax!!

I haven't got my bill for the month yet but I will look when it comes. My billing still comes through the local electrical coop, not sure if that will make a difference.

Just curious...how can any state tax satellite service? No lines are hung/buried on public grounds. I can understand D* being taxed for franchise fees or something like that, but not for the sub receiving the signal? Kind of like that story about how the US Postal Service wants to tax email. Just doesn't jibe...

Thats one thing you can always count on here in the good old USA. Taxes!

No matter what happens they aren't going anywhere.

I don't have any such tax on my bill, of course I'm in a Direcpath-serviced apartment complex so my bill is split between them and D*... no taxes on either.

Good news for you (corrected billing) and the rest of us (no precedent on new bogus tax).

Sonny is just a good ole boy. If you ain't from around here, you might not appreciate him. Of course I say that from the comfort and security of having the Savannah River between me and him.
