Please be reminded of the upcoming due date for the Report listed below:
Form 499-A Annual Telecommunications Reporting Worksheet
All intrastate, interstate and international providers of telecommunications within the United States, including interconnected VoIP providers, and payphone providers that are aggregators are required to file FCC Form 499-A with the Universal Service Administrative Company (“USAC”) each year with limited exceptions. Non-interconnected VoIP providers with interstate end-user revenues subject to TRS contributions must file the Form 499-A to report the revenues. The Form 499-A is used to determine a company’s required contribution to the Universal Service Fund (“USF”), as well as to the Local Number Portability (“LNP”) Administration, North American Numbering Plan Administration (“NANPA”) and Telecommunications Relay Service (“TRS”) funds, in addition to serving as a carrier’s FCC registration. The Form 499-A is due to USAC by April 2, 2012.
