Sprint Sued By New York For $300M Over Tax Fraud

redletterdave writes "Sprint-Nextel Corp., the third-largest mobile service provider in the U.S., has been sued by the state of New York for allegedly not collecting or paying millions of dollars in taxes. The lawsuit, filed by New York's Attorney General Eric Schneiderman with the New York State Supreme Court, says Sprint deliberately failed to collect more than $100 million worth of taxes from Sprint customers over the course of seven years in an attempt to lure customers away from competitors like Verizon and AT&T. If the Attorney General's statements are true, Sprint effectively made its service more than $4.6 million less expensive per month, and Sprint will be forced to pay more than $300 million in damages, penalties and attorneys' fees."
