So? Our great-grandchildren will still be paying for the Iraq War.

According to this piece on the Motley fool website...

I read a very surprising article in USA Today the other day. It seems that we American consumers of telephone services have been paying an excise tax on our phone bills for a heck of a long time. Apparently, this tax was imposed back in 1898 -- get this -- to help pay for the Spanish-American War.

The good news is you can get a refund of this money on your federal tax return.
