AT&T Sued Over Mobile Internet Sales Tax

More than a dozen lawsuits have been filed this week nationwide against AT&T over a 6 percent mobile Internet sales tax that the plaintiffs say is against the law.

One such suit has been filed in Connecticut, where sales taxes on telecom services are allowed, but a similar tax for mobile Internet access is excluded, according to a lawyer representing one of the people filing suit. AT&T told the Hartford Courant that it is complying with tax laws in that state.

The attorneys in the case are interested in turning this into a class action to represent anyone in Connecticut who rely on AT&T for their mobile Internet service. Only Connecticut residents are eligible to join because tax laws vary from state to state.
