Class Action Lawsuit against AT&T over taxes on internet access

A class action lawsuit has been filed against AT&T alleging violation of state and federal law prohibiting taxation on internet access.

According to the complaint, AT&T improperly charges Illinois customers state and local sales tax on internet access on its monthly bills.  It lists the charges as a separate charge on bills to customers, the complaint states.

The complaint states that the Internet Fairness Act prohibits state and local governments from imposing taxes on internet access and, while Illinois law imposes a tax on telecommunications service, it does not impose it if it is already prohibited by federal law.
