The Boston Globe today took its turn today at examining the sales tax policy governing bundled cell phone transactions.
Reporter Michael Farrell's story is a fair recitation of the history of the policy. Farrell noted that one wireless seller, Sprint, is paying the difference in sales tax between the sales price of the phone and the retail or wholesale price on which the tax is actually computed, unlike other wireless sellers.
This blog has published numerous posts and comments on bundled cell phones, and welcomes Farrell's contribution to the discussion.
