Suburban Propane / Taxes and Additional Charges

Hickory, NC, United States Review updated:

I am on Suburban's Budget Payment Plan. Because of the unseasonably warm winters we have had over the past couple of years, I have not needed a propane delivery. On the 18th of January, I did receive a top-up of propane. When I got the bill, I almost crapped my pants!!! On top of the usual sales tax, municipal tax, and transportation surcharges, I am also being charged a $9.62 Safety Practices and Training Fee, which also has sales and municipal taxes applied. The Safety Practices and Training Fee is charged so that Suburban can recoup the inspection fees for their vehicles and facilities, as well as costs for training their employees and associated testing. So, for a 28.7 gallon tank top-up, I am paying $22.38 in taxes and fees...What a rip-off!!!
