Pretty soon we’ll see most states levy a tax on prepaid cell phone users. Maybe we’ll see a few holdouts, but with many states struggling with their budgets this seems like a reasonable way to raise a little revenue. Indiana is the latest addition. Starting on July 1 they’ll start assessing a 25-cent fee on all purchase of prepaid phones and cards. That does leave prepaid users a little leeway. The state charges postpaid subscribers a 50 cent monthly fee. Prepaid users who top up once a month will obviously pay less, and those who stock up on minutes all at once will pay a fraction of that. Those who top-up weekly, however, will not enjoy this new fee, I don’t think.
