Tax Tip: Cell Phones Qualify For Telephone Excise Tax Refund

Blogger Clever Dude reminds us that the telephone excise tax refund applies to cell phones as well as land lines. From the IRS:

You may be one of the nearly 160 million phone customers who can request a refund of the 3% federal excise tax paid on long-distance and bundled phone service billed after Feb. 28, 2003 and before Aug. 1, 2006. Federal long-distance excise taxes paid on cell phone, land line, fax, Internet phone service and bundled service all qualify for the refund.
