A note about tax, fee, and surcharge amounts
Many taxes, fees, and surcharges come in the form of a predictable, flat monthly rate. You may notice, however, that the amount applied for others can vary month to month. There are a few reasons that this happens:
- Rates can increase or decrease based on federal, state and local government assessments.
- If the pre-tax amount of a service varies monthly because of usage (for example, long distance charges), then the taxes, fees, and surcharges will vary as well, as they're based on a percentage of the amount.
- If you've recently moved to a different taxing jurisdiction then your taxes will be based on the rates for your new address.
