Taxes and Fees
Taxes and fees included on billing statements represent regulatory assessments from local, state and federal government entities. All the taxes and fees included in this section are collected and paid to governmental entities. Suddenlink does not keep any of these monies collected.
Fees and taxes are calculated by applying the statutory rates provided by the government agency responsible for the collection of the fees or taxes by the cost of service eligible for the tax/fee.
Most but not all services appearing on the statement are included in the various tax/fee calculations. The services eligible for the application of tax/fee are determined by the applicable governmental agency and provided to Suddenlink to make sure the proper amounts are collected.
PEG Fees represent a separate fee that is collected and paid to the Local Franchise Authority for the funding of a Public Government and Education channel for that specific community.
Taxes and fees appearing on the billing statement are separated by the products selected—Video Service, High Speed Data service, Home Telephone service or Home Security service.
The tax/fee assessed may change from time to time as a result of changes from the local, state or federal government entity responsible for the collection of tax/fees.
