I am trying to understand Verizon's breakdown of MTS fees. I am on monthly auto bill pay for my prepaid service. My plan is $40 with Gardena MTS fee as of April 2018 at 9.8%. So I have been charged $43.92 every month.
Under payment details, it breaks it down as follows:
Ca Prepaid MTS Fee $1.40
Ca Prepaid MTS Fee $2.22
Ca Prepaid MTS Fee $0.30
Total Amount $43.92
9.8% of $40 is $43.92 but first question:
Why is it broken down by three sections?
My next month's bill is $46.12 with total taxes at $6.12 but Gardena MTS Fee is still at 9.8%
What additional taxes or surcharges was added?
Looking at the new breakdown, one of the Prepaid MTS Fee was increased from $1.40 to $3.60.
Where can I find more information to this increase?
I went on the California Board to search for recent changes.
Currently, Gardena MTS Fee is still at 9.8%
