911 Service Fee (what's this?) $1.59

Those are all standard fees for phone service.
Here is the list from my Verizon Budget Service land line bill.

Federal Excise Tax $0.44
Telecommunications Relay Service $0.08
E911 $1.00
PA Gross Receipts Tax Surcharge $0.38
Federal Subscriber Line and Access Recovery Charge $6.20
Federal Universal Service Fee $0.97

Total $9.07

In comparison the charge for the phone line is $8.13.

The taxes and fees cost more than the phone line.
