I think the only tax voip providers have to charge is a 3% federal exise
tax. But this is up for debate right now depending on the pricing
structure of the provider.
Some voip providers charge a e911 recovery fee, but they are required to
pass all of that on.
So the average voip/Vonage tax should be around $1
Voip soon might have to pay into the Universal Service Fund, but for now
this is not required.
