    FCC RELEASES 2014 FORM 499-A AND INSTRUCTIONS WITH IMPORTANT CHANGES IN DOCUMENTATION REQUIREMENTS

    The FCC has released the Form 499-A annual telecommunications revenue reporting worksheet and instructions for the annual filing due April 1, 2014. Telecommunications carriers and interconnected VoIP providers must use this updated version of the form to report their Calendar Year 2013 revenues.

     

    The new form and instructions contain important changes that must be implemented before this year’s April 1 reporting deadline. Most significantly, the FCC has strengthened its documentation requirements that carriers must follow in order to justify reporting revenue from resellers as “carrier’s carrier” revenue that is exempt from USF contributions.
