The Taxman Cometh To VoIP (Again)

Skype may want to look at how they bill all of us in 2011, as taxes are about to hit online calling companies as states and municipalities get tougher to make up the lost revenue from landline and coin box pay phones. This is not the first time we have seen this type of thing come down the pike. In the past, the National League of Cities pushed for this as it foresaw the pending change to the calling landscape.

The news comes at a time when AMI Consulting says that VoIP use will become "critical" in the coming years.
