Digiital Voice Questions

I have FIOS TV, Internet & phone.  I am in NY and have 2 questions.  1. Is Digital Voice an available.option with FIOS in NY (Yonkers) and 2.  Are the multiple Phone Taxes (Ex: Universal Service Fee, FCC Line Charge, etc)  applied to Digital Voice as they are to the regular FIOS phone service.

I know I didn't have to pay these phone taxes with Vonage nor Cablevison.

With the exception of the 911 fee these are various sales taxes.  I am talking about fees that are applied ONLY to phone service, such as the FCC Line Charge and Universal Service Fee which add up to more than $8.00 alone.  I did NOT pay these when I had Vonage and I did NOT pay them when I had Cablevison.  I DO PAY them with FIOS phone service and wanted to know if they are charged with 'Digital Voice'.  Anyone with 'Digital Voice' care to say?

Did you ever get an answer regarding the government fees and taxes with FIOS Digital Voice.  That's the primary reason I'm considering it.  Got no help from FIOS support.
