New bi-partisan poll finds Nebraskans also strongly in favor of reform to ensure more fair taxation in state with nation’s highest wireless rate
LINCOLN, Neb. Feb. 3, 2011 Deb Fischer Friday, February 4
Nebraskans currently face some of the highest monthly wireless tax and fee rates in the country – in some cities, customers pay in excess of 18% in state and local taxes and fees, and nearly 24% when federal taxes and fees are included. Senator Fischer’s proposal, if it became law, would cut taxes and fees on Nebraskans’ wireless bills by as much as 25%.
Of the 400 cell phone users and likely voters polled statewide, top findings include:
- 76% 54%
- 68% to 6%
- 66% Nebraska 18%
- 65% Nebraska 24% 1% 11%
