Telecommunications tax compliance is a burden for most companies. There are numerous taxing jurisdictions and filing requirements along with software limitations for determining, calculating, recording, and reporting of telecommunications taxes, surcharges, and fees. To complicate things further, there is often limited visibility to taxes and fees paid on telecom services and equipment. Ultimately, these challenges can prevent companies from staying compliant.
