Cherry Valley telecom tax eliminated
CHERRY VALLEY, Ill. — Residents of the Village of Cherry Valley should see their phone bill go down beginning with the July phone bill they receive in August.
At the beginning of 2012, Cherry Valley’s Village Board voted to eliminate the community’s 6 percent telecommunication tax.
With an increase in sales tax revenues, the village opted to eliminate the telecommunication tax, which was bringing in nearly $10,000 per month over the past two years.
The elimination of the municipal telecommunication tax took affect July 1 and should be reflected when residents receive their July phone bill in August.
Because some village residents have Rockford mailing addresses, the village is encouraging its residents to review their bill for July service to make sure the tax has been taken off, and to contact their phone provider if the tax has not been removed.
