The evolution of the cellular phone has come a long way, so much so that what consumers use their phones for has become a crucial part of how many of us go about our daily lives. Unfortunately with that innovation and advancement in technology that has taken us from the flip phones of yesterday to the smartphones of today, comes a heavy tax burden from federal and state government. Regardless of what state someone resides in, they’re paying excessive taxes for something that has become commonplace in their life. On October 8, the Tax Foundation released a study that examines wireless tax rates for each of the fifty states. Joseph Henchman of The Tax Foundation and Economist Scott Mackey, authors of Wireless Taxation in the United States 2014, give plenty of information to sift through in this report.

In an erratic defense of the cost versus effectiveness of USGBC's LEED green building certification system (see the USA Today investigative series), USGBC's Rick Fedrizzi shouts that this is a "social movement" and "we are right" at their annual Green Build conference in San Francisco. Taxpayers will say "you are wrong" as they learn more about the costs.

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) green building certification system

The Taxpayers Protection Alliance is launching an investigation into the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) green building certification system. On January 17, 2013, TPA submitted three Freedom of Information Act requests trying to find out what collaboration took place between the General Services Administration and the U.S. Green Building Council when LEED was adopted. While more efficient and sustainable buildings are a laudable goal and can reduce energy consumption and energy costs for taxpayers, achieving that end through de-facto government monopolies is not the right approach.
