At last count, there were over 300 types of telecom taxes, fees, charges, and surcharges imposed on potentially 685 different tax bases requiring potentially 48,000 different filings per legal entity across the U.S. in tens of thousands of jurisdictions at the federal, state, and local levels. The vast majority of these impositions currently apply to Interconnected VoIP and Wireless services, and even Non-Interconnected VoIP services. Moreover, state & local governments continue to extend impositions to new and novel transmission services, including IoT networks.
Sales and use, gross receipts, utility, 911/E-911 and other transaction taxes imposed on communications providers by federal, state and local governments throughout the United States are resource-draining activities that require specialized expertise. Transaction taxes on communication services vary greatly state-to-state, city-to-city and from one communication service to another. These variations, which often are the legacy of tax and regulatory decisions made before the advent of modern communication technologies, can be confusing and complex. And the burdensome task of filing tax returns can often involve countless hours of labor each month. Making the wrong taxability decisions and selecting the wrong tax compliance provider can be dangerous and damaging, both to your company and your customers.
