IP In The Heart Of Taxes

Got several replies and trackbacks to my post analyzing the relative merits (or total lack thereof) of taxing VoIP at the federal, state, or local level.The general tone is that VoIP should not be taxed at all, except, perhaps by the call.

Got several replies and trackbacks to my post analyzing the relative merits (or total lack thereof) of taxing VoIP at the federal, state, or local level.

The general tone is that VoIP should not be taxed at all, except, perhaps by the call. Some would not even want that. In fact, John Shaw (I do not think we are related)says "if they tax our computersI will sell it and not have one."

If that happens, maybe you can Podcast, like Todd Cochrane of Geek News Central let us know that he does.

Another poster - one perhaps not pleased by the results of the last election-questioned the qualifications of FCC chair Michael Powell to set telecommunications policy. We'll know more on Tuesday, when the FCC weighs in.
