The communications industry is continuously evolving. The services that these organizations provide have become broader and more technical. Communications providers simply no longer provide telephone services alone. Instead, these companies provide varied services, often bundled together, ranging from local and long distance telephone services through VOIP, data, wireless, and cable TV. As the typical makeup of these providers has evolved, regulatory bodies, such as the FCC, have scrambled to implement guidelines that detail how these services are to be taxed. The resulting confusion has made both the laws themselves and the understanding of them by the communications providers quite murky.
Many communications providers have found themselves unprepared for changes that could leave them exposed to fines, damaged reputations, and lost business opportunities. Further, even those that are prepared today may not be prepared in the future, as mandates continue to evolve. Where do you stand?
I’d like to invite you to participate in a study that I’m currently conducting to understand the communications tax compliance landscape. You will learn where you stand, and immediately after completing the survey, you’ll be directed to a free report titled, “Addressing the Indirect Tax Challenges Facing Communications Providers.”
