Verizon Wireless joins the act to ax taxes

Following last week’s announcement by Oregon Senator Ron Wyden, that he wants to end unfair taxes on wireless products and services, Verizon Wireless issued a statement “applauding” the senators work. And sounding like a-know-it-all.

Steve Zipperstein, vice president and general counsel at Verizon Wireless, said in a statement: “Verizon Wireless has always said wireless customers should not be subject to unfair and discriminatory taxes, and this bill addresses that issue directly. On behalf of our more than 67 million customers, we applaud this proposed legislation and commend Senators Wyden and Snowe for this important effort to make wireless services more affordable for American consumers.”

You’re right Verizon, you always have said you hated charging people unfair taxes. Thanks for coming out.
