Telecom tax integration and management

Communication service providers are required to bill and remit taxes and fees for telecommunication services. These telecom related taxes are complicated for a variety of reasons. One reason is that there are often different federal, state, and local tax rates and regulations. Telecom taxes also get levied differently on various telecommunications services (i.e., equipment sales, service provisioning, or usage). In addition, the telecom industry is continuously evolving with new technologies, which makes it challenging to keep tax laws up to date.

TimelyBill's integrated tax calculator helps service providers simplify taxation management. TimelyBill allows you to map your tax codes, in order to bill the latest taxes, surcharges, and fees. Once tax codes are assigned, any applicable taxation will be applied according to the jurisdiction where the product or service resides. When needed, our team also works with you or your compliance organization to provide any report you may be required to produce out of TimelyBill for submission to the proper state or federal agencies.
