Virginia lawmakers today passed a bill to simplify taxes on wireless and other communication services. The new bill, which proposes a flat 5% tax on bills, will be sent to the state's governor today. Virginia currently determines communication tax rates not just based on the type of service, but also the location of the subscriber. Many consumer advocacy groups have pleaded for simpler taxes and clearer presentation of charges and government fees. While other states have taken on billing practices, this is one of the first attempts to change taxation.

Simpler taxes or less taxes?

I'm confused. I'm thinking the big carriers aren't going to back down from the 20% taxes they now charge for some 5% flat tax.
