    I don't feel like itemizing, but I'm on the Simply Everything Plan and my taxes, fees, and surcharges add up to a little over $13. State service/sales tax alone is 6% and included in the $13.

    While I enjoy Sprint's network and coverage, and I pay hardly anything, I can't help but wonder why so many people are getting double taxed. I wonder how many people who don't come on the forums are getting double taxed as well. Pretty suspect Sprint.

    CA Government Fees & Taxes = 2.93
    Sprint Surcharges = 2.46
    Total = 5.39

    I had never really looked at it and was surprised how low the CA fees/taxes were. I'd always been told that CA had one of the higher taxes on cells phones, but after reading this thread, I guess not.

    Ditto. It's weird though, was paying something like $8-12 in taxes on AT&T and ~$5 on Sprint. It's like carriers just pull a number out of their ***...

    Thanks to everyone that responded. Supposedly, a Sprint supervisor is calling me back sometime this Friday. If this net any results, I will pursue the other recommended avenues. I figure I owe Sprint as much. They have always worked with me on small issues.

    I'd like to know what happens with this as well - the 60 day thing is BS. They taxed you twice erroneously for what, two years? Therefore, legally speaking, two years of credit is due to you...via check, rebate, something...I would be very very angry to hear that they would only credit 60 days. Thats a good amount of money over two years...to top it off, it is an error on their part. Whether you caught the error today, or a month from now is not relevant. Let us know what happens...I am also curious how much they are going to end up crediting you.

    I had basically given up on this some weeks ago because I was spending a rediculous amount of time on the phone with Sprint tyring to fix this.

    Fastforward 2 weeks later, I notice a credit on my next bill for $300something. Not bad. I didn't ask Sprint was the credit was for and. Honestly at this point, didn't care. Best part of this is that when I flip to the taxes/surcharges page of the bill, I'm still being charged for counties taxes. Gotta love it. I now have my receptionist handling it. Thanks to all that have helped with this.

    I think you all should post the cost of your plan along with the taxes. It just seems out of context to post just your tax amount.
