T-Mobile promotion gives customers phone sales tax back

Available to new and existing subscribers, the deal starts on February 1

T-Mobile on Monday announced it will soon give customers their sales tax back for smartphone purchases. The deal, which starts on February 1, is a limited-time promotion that is being offered to current and prospective customers.

Starting later this week, anyone who buys a smartphone on a T-Mobile equipment installment plan and either a T-Mobile One or Simple Choice Unlimited LTE plan can receive the sales tax back. It’s done in the form of a credit and the customer must initiate the process via an online form.

Now, we’re giving you back more than you paid in sales tax on ALL T-Mobile smartphones for you and your entire family. So what are you waiting for?

Once the form is filled out, T-Mobile will send a MasterCard gift card with 11.2 percent of the phone’s price on it. Valued in some instances at more than $100, it’s certainly higher than the tax rate in many areas.

All phones are eligible under the promotion according to T-Mobile. Moreover, it’s good on as many lines as you want or need, provided it is under 12. It’s not clear how long the deal will run.

Since 2007 we have offered news and opinion around Android, the mobile space, and connected homes. We aim to help users get more from their smartphones and hope to be a valuable resource for future purchases.
