I am going to exempt $25.00 for EACH dialup account... may have to argue
with the comptroller, but I believe that I will win...

Nope.. I was referring to a $34.95 PER 2 BRIs.. not per 1 BRI.. so yes, we
both are correct... In any event, the customer owes tax on anything above
$25 on a single connection, and I believe that a bonded connection is still
single, they are bonded... not two seperate systems.
