My taxes in Florida on my first bill were 15.86. The total bill was $120.

Your bill is correct.

It is every month, but it will go down some since some of the tax is charges that only happen at activation. It also depend on your State. In Florida the State tax is 9.59 and the Orlando city tax is 5.66. Thats every month.

Welcome to the wonderful world of taxes and somthing you get to see every month. They will go down a little on the next bill since you wont be taxed for the activation fee again.

i talked to my AT&T buddy CSR who spelled it out for me - my month starts on the 5th, so from the 29th to the 5th is included as a prorated amount on your first bill, including the $36 activation fee. and applicable activation taxes and taxes on the prorate

How is it that you were not charged an activation fee?
I guess thinking about it, it does seem low. Its like only 20 something extra bucks, thats weird. I guess ill have to see ehat my bill is when it comes and hey if they don't want to charge me activation thats fine by me haha
