City charges 911 tax fee?

Post by kaho » Mon Aug 20, 2012 3:43 pm

My August billing history has a surprise increase of $1.57 city 911 tax in addition to a 911 service fee of $1.59. I am wondering if there is any other city charges 911 fee. Is it legal for the city to impose any tax fee without voters' approval?

For my zip, local related fees, taxes, surcharges include WA 911 and County 911 (Ooma tax calculator amounts match my cell phone bill). Likely city will get in on this as well soon. The city already charges a bunch of taxes on my cell bill: /viewtopic.php?f=6&t=12293&start=10#p86864
