Phone Service Tax

Nevada is increasing its monthly tax to pay for free video phone service for the deaf to 7 cents. The Public Utilities Commission had cut the rate down to 3 cents after it was 8 cents. After complaints, the Commission made a deal with the Disability Services Division to push it back up. The new rate kicks in this August. As many as 10,000 people use the free service each month.
