  • Reply Comments on the FCC Notice of Proposed Rulemaking relating to the Annual Regulatory Fee are due on May 11, 2010. The proposed fees for Commercial Mobile Radio Service (CMRS) providers is $0.08 per line, which is the same as the 2009 rate. The proposed fee for Interstate Telecommunications Service Providers (ITSPs) is $0.00351 per assessable dollar, which represents a slight increase from the 2009 rate of $0.00314. ITSPs may calculate the amount that they owe by applying the proposed rate of 0.00351 to all interstate and international telecommunications services provided to end users as reported on Form 499-A. A copy of the NPRM can be found here. The FCC’s annual fees are typically due the last week in September.
