T-Mobile Fees

I've had the same phone plan since I switched to a G1 back in Oct of 2008. I have a grandfathered time and text voice plan and an unlimited data plan. As a result unless I'm traveling and incurring roaming charges, my "Monthly Recurring Charges" have been the same for the last 18 months. However, during that time the "Other Charges" and "Taxes & Surcharges" have gone up from $3.86 to $6.47!

Here's a little historical breakdown:

Due DateOther ChargesTaxes & Surcharges
Jan 2009Regulatory Program Fees: 0.86Federal Universal Service Fund: 0.68
State Sales Tax: 1.57
State 911: 0.75
Jun 2009Regulatory Program Fees: 0.86Federal Universal Service Fund: 0.64
State Sales Tax: 1.57
State 911: 0.75
Jan 2010Regulatory Program Fees: 1.21Federal Universal Service Fund: 0.59
State Sales Tax: 1.99
State 911: 0.75
Jun 2010Regulatory Program Fees: 1.21Federal Universal Service Fund: 0.94
State Sales Tax: 3.57
State 911: 0.75

The recent changes in State Sales Tax is confusing me the most. It's like they changed what they collect sales tax on. Anyone else seeing strange fees?
