    • On July 29, 2008, by Anonymous - This seems to simplify the taxation process... I'm all for it. Would remove cell phones from the list of taxable perks. Currently, employees have to keep a log of personal versus business calls and what the call was for. Employers have failed to do so and have been hit with large back tax bills. This is yet another burden our government should NOT be levying!

    • On August 06, 2008, by Anonymous - I am in favor of the removal of cellular telephone from listed property. Taxing employees for use of an employer provided cell phone is stupid. How are employers to determine the value of a multiple phone contract that is on a pooled minute system? My employer requires certain employees to have a employer provided phone, and then withholds income tax from the employee paycheck. The value my employer is using is $40 per month taxable benefit. This doesn't make sense as to add my husband to my personal account cost us $10 per month. My husband was able to reject his employer provided phone. I am glad that my job classification does not require me to have a phone, as my employer would not allow me to use my personal phone in place of theirs. This bill would remove cellalar phones as listed property a taxable benefit to employees.
