Internet Taxes and Fees

Are there taxes on Internet access?

In most states there are no taxes on Internet access.

The ten states where taxes are levied on Internet access are:

  • Hawaii
  • New Hampshire
  • New Mexico
  • North Dakota
  • Ohio
  • South Dakota
  • Tennessee
  • Texas
  • Washington
  • Wisconsin

In these states the taxes levied may fall under sales tax, franchise taxes or telecommunications tax so there is no set structure.


Does this mean my online purchases or other transactions are tax exempt?

No. The Internet Tax Freedom Act (ITFA) prohibits direct taxation on Internet use/access in most states but this does not apply to purchases or transactions made online.


Are there taxes on installation?

No, we do not charge taxes on the installation fees.


Why do I see taxes on my bill?

In most states, if you only have Internet service with Ting, then you won't see any tax on your bill. If you are seeing taxes on your bill then:

  • You're in one of the ten states where taxes on Internet access are levied.


  • You have mobile service with Ting as well.


  • You rent your Ting Internet Box (this will be a very tiny amount of tax on your $9 monthly rental fee).
