California Has Second Thoughts About Trying To Tax People’s Text Messages

California doesn’t think it taxes its residents enough. The state actually looked into taxing people for sending text messages. Amazing.

What’s left to tax in California? Seriously, you had to wonder that when they were proposing this garbage. The state was considering taxing text messages. It’s a state with a trash governor, a trash legislature that passes shoddy laws, and so this proposal, which was total garbage, shouldn’t shock us. It was announced earlier this month…

Now they’re dropping the plan. FOX 8 reports:

California abandons plans to tax text messages

SAN FRANCISCO, California – If the popular saying, “As California goes, so goes the country,” holds true, that will be good news for people who don’t want a tax on text messages.

California regulators were hoping to tax text messages, until a recent ruling from the FCC.

The FCC says text messages are an “information service” – not a “telecommunications service.”

The state of California wanted to add new monthly fees onto wireless customers’ bills to increase funds for programs that bring connectivity to underserved residents. Those programs include 911 services and equipment for deaf users, according to the California Public Utilities Commission.

Dropping this was a smart move. What will they try to go after next?
