    What do you think the "Administrative Fees" listed right below the taxes are for?

    Nothing to do with taxes, it could more accurately be called “Additional Profit Fee” or even “Yearly Executive Bonus Fee.”

    If they wanted they could put a $10.00 “Tower Maintenance Fee” and a $15.00 “Internet Access Fee” in that same section.

    They call it “Adminustrative Fee” and put it in the taxes section for the sole purpose of misleading you into thinking it’s a required, third-party fee (it isn’t) that doesn’t actually go directly into their own pocket (it does). Yes, it’s deceptive, but completely legal.
