The Federal Excise Tax Credit was the result of a long standing court case against the IRS concerning the Excise Tax on long distance telephone service.

Federal Excise Tax Credit

The Excise Tax has a long history. It was started in response to the Spanish American War and although it is commonly considered to have been in force since that time, the truth is that it has been repealed and reinstated several times. It has been closely associated with various wars. In other words, it is reinstated to raise revenue during time of war and then was repealed when peace returned.

A single person with no exemptions could claim $30. This went up in $10 increments. Two exemptions could claim $40. A taxpaye...
