Trending: No Text Tax

Central PA Live

Last week, we told you about a new California tax that was up for a vote where they’d be taxing your text messages on your phone…worry no longer!

State regulators say a new FCC ruling is preventing them from imposing a tax on text plans.

Regulators were scheduled to vote on the measure January 10.

The FCC issued a new rule on December 12, determining text messages to be an “information service” not a “telecommunications service”.
