But that changes Jan 1 when prepaid airtime will be taxed at 9.260 to 18.260 the depending on the city and county the store is located in, or in the case of online sales, the users billing address. California's new tax isn't really new, it's a collection of taxes including an e911 fee, Lifeline Services fee and local utility users taxes that up to now were collected directly from the mobile operators.
