I signed up for two phones, both Droid Turbo's, great phones, and this was on Cyber Monday, where both phones were 10 dollars a month each, with one costing 11 for 64 GBs of storage.. After all was said and done, the monthly total was 91 dollars a month, with $0.00 estimated tax, activation fee waived, and 1GB of shared data, along with line access for both phones. 91 dollars seemed fine, and I paid. My problem now, is that the bill came, and instead of seeing 91 dollars, I'm being charged $108.42. Apparently $12.76 for "Verizon Wireless ' Surcharges and Other Charges & Credits". 21 for equipment, which seems fine, and 74.66 for monthly charges, which makes no sense, considering I was shown 70 dollars. What I want to know is: why am I suddenly being charged nearly 20 dollars more than what I was told? Do I have to call Verizon to dispute this?
sounds like it's your first month's bill and the additional charges are prorated charges resulting from usage from your start date to the end of your randomly determined bill cycle end date and then the regular month of service. Verizon Wireless surcharges and other charges and credits are normal charges you'll see monthly. Those are determined by your geographic location.

Depending on which state you live in the taxes from federal and state are between 13 and 25% of your regular charges. The installments are not taxed.
Look at your bill details for what is being billed. Taxes and fees are passed on - none of those are kept by Verizon.
