What is a USF Charge

There is a lot of confusion about USF. The FCC does not require companies to charge USF. Many companies are required to pay into USF and are allowed to recover their contributions from customers. Companies pay into USF based on information included on their quarterly and annual FCC 499 reports. If your client is paying into USF, then it is a business decision whether to pass the cost on to customers. The FCC was scheduled to release some proposed rules this quarter on changes to the USF contributions and might require more companies to contribute. It would be months and maybe years before the proposed rules become effective. Hope this helps.

Great explanation
