"Not your Typical Tax Mapping Workshop!

May 4, 2022 -- 1-4PM (Half Day)

3 CPE Credits

Tax Mapping, Telecom Billing, FCC Traffic Study, Chart of Accounts, FCC 499A Line Items, CSI Tax Rating - Closing all of the gaps! 

This session links your billing & transaction taxes to your Accounting records to your annual traffic study and the revenue reported on the line items of the FCC Universal Service reports. 

Go from compliance to being audit defensible with analyzing the traffic study into Monthly Recurring Charges, Non-Recurring Charges, Telecom Usage, and Non-telephony revenue. And then take the study to the next step by producing reliable results from your Tax Rating module of your Billing system so that both your Reporting to USAC and Billing your customers line up.  We will also Review Factors That Affect Tax Calculations. 

This session will focus on the factors that are involved in calculating the governmental taxes and surcharges. From breaking out and assigning tax mapping codes to each component in your telecom billing system, to performing traffic studies to analyze the impact on FCC USF, we will review all the ways of mere compliance to an audit defense position.

Q&A, discussion, common tax/regulatory pitfalls, and practical feedback providedthroughout.
