Form 499-A Due April 1

This is a reminder of the upcoming deadline for filing FCC Form 499-A and its supporting documentation on April 1, 2024.  The Commission requires all telecommunications carriers and other providers of telecommunications services (including Voice over Internet Protocol (“VoIP”) service providers) to report each year on the revenues they receive from offering service.  The Commission uses this information to calculate required contributions to the universal service support fund (“USF”), the telecommunications relay services support mechanism (“TRS”), the cost recovery mechanism for numbering administration (“NANPA”), and the cost recovery mechanism for shared costs of long-term number portability (“LNP”).  Carriers must provide annual revenue breakdown information for the 2023 calendar year.

Filing instructions can be found here and a template for the form can be found here.  We recommend you review the instructions for the E-File process, which can be found here.

For more information please see the FCC Public Notice and the USAC user guide.

Please Contact Us if you have any questions.
