Taxes and Fees

Voxtell charges taxes and fees associated with providing telephony services. This section goes over items that you may see on your billing statement.

Federal Universal Service Fund

This is used to recover contributions Voxtell is required to make to the federal Universal Service Fund, which is used to promote access to telecommunications services at reasonable rates for those living in rural and high-cost areas, income-eligible consumers, rural health care facilities, and schools and libraries. Voxtell is permitted, but not required, to recover these costs from its customers. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) sets the applicable USF rate every quarter, which is subject to change. You can learn more here.

Federal Regulatory Assessment Fee

Compliance and Administrative Cost Recovery Fee

The Compliance and Administrative Cost Recovery Fee (“CRF”) is a fee that Voxtell charges to recover the various costs and expenses that it incurs in connection with:

  • Complying with legal, regulatory, and other requirements, including, without limitation, federal, state, and local reporting and filing requirements.
  • Responding to subpoenas, civil investigative demands, and other official requests and assisting with official investigations.
  • Reporting and managing payments to third-party telecommunications service providers.

E911 Regulatory Recovery Fee

Voxtell is required to provide Emergency 911 (e911) services by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The FCC allows us to charge a recurring monthly fee that is used for next-generation costs to support computer software and hardware upgrades that allow public safety answering points (PSAPs) to send assistance to the registered location of a 911 caller. The e911 Regulatory Recovery fee of $0.99 is charged for each line of voxtell.com services that have the ability to place outbound calls. Visit the FCC Website for more information about e911.
