I feel your pain.

When I had DSL in Brooklyn I couldn't believe the taxes either. I went to dry line DSL to save on taxes as well.

I now moved to jersey City and have 1 phone line with DSl @ 47.99 ???

I can't see the actual DSL charge but I do see a charge for $29.99 for Freedom Essentials.

It looks like this Basic 25.55
Non Basic: 32.12 (Maybe DSL) for a total bill for 57.67

Here are the taxes:

Fed Excise Tax: .22
NJ State Tax: 3.71
911 system: .90
Universel Service Fee: 1.77
Federal Sub Line and Access Recovery: 7.54
Carrier Cost Recovery: .54

You should be forthcoming, and mention that these are business lines. Centrex and VES are more than the consumer offerings...
