For the month of January I did not live in my condo. I left the hot water heater on, and of course the fridge. Today I received my electric bill. Very interesting.
They charge the following:
1. Customer charge: $8.03 (this is what they charge to send you the bill)
2. Gross Receipts tax: $.40
3.Municipal franchise fee: $.98
4. Municipal utility tax: $1.37
So the total tax for this bill is: $10.78
The best part: I used 61 Kwh and the cost was $7.71!!!!!!!!!!!! WTF?
Now this is just the Electric bill, how about the phone bill, water bill, sewer, etc. You get the picture.
Even when you die some-one from your estate is supposed to file your last tax return.
Now you know why you are a slave to the job.
