Introduction:Take a look to see if you have been the brunt of some of these ridiculous fees. Some are fees you might not even know you are paying or have already paid for in the past.

  • 01

    Alarm Permit Fees

    In some states there is a use fee when a person installs an alarm of any kind on their premisis. This is called an alarm permit fee. The alarm company sets the alarm system for the residence and the local county or city is notified the alarm is in place. The fee is then collected for each alarm installed in the residence that was installed to protect the family. The homeowner pays for the devices, the installation and all the permit fees and taxes put on the device. Sometimes the permit fee is governed by the cost of the alarm system installed.

  • 02

    Traffic Violations Fees

    In the event you are not aware of the fees you are charged, traffic violations are on you. The fees that require equipment to be used for traffic violations is on the tax payer. The elected official who responds to the traffic violations is paid by tax payer money. Even if you are a law abiding citizen, you pay these fees. Concentrate to find these fees on your property taxes or go to your city assessor's office to have them revealed to you. You cannot avoid these ridiculous fees because some of these funds keep the highways clear of abandoned vehicles.

  • 03

    Yearly Fees on Alarm Systems

    After a person pays to have the safety alarm system to be installed, the permit fee is charged to the residential owner. Each year an annual alarm fee is charged to the homeowner of the place where the alarm system was installed. This fee can be $10 or depending on the local fee decided in that county or city. Ridiculous fees might be negotiated if the right circumstances exist. Those circumstances might be legal mandates requiring the alarms be in place or government supported programs. Inquire at several alarm installation places before settling on just one. Your fees might help you decide which company you hire for the installation of the alarm.

  • 04

    Telephone Directory Rip Offs

    Just in case you do not want your telephone listed in the local directory, you can have that done. When you request your name and telephone be omitted from the directory, you will need to pay a fee for that to be done. It you want your name a certain way in that directory, it better be done the right way the first time otherwise there could be an added fee to change it once it is published. The correction will not be made until a new directory is published. There might be deadlines, so inquire as soon as you want the changes so the ridiculous fees can be kept to a minimum.

  • 05

    Electric Box Fee

    If you don't know if you have a smart meter connected to your electric service box, you might want to inquire if you do. Then for any reason you determine to have that removed from your home; for health reasons or other personal decisions you will be paying a fee to have that removed. Your other old meter will then be put on your electric box, but each month beginning soon in 2013, you will possibly be paying another $50 dollars a month plus your usage, for a meter reader to come to your home to read your old meter. Call your electric company and a trained person will call you back convincing you to keep the smart meter by telling you these ridiculous fees.
