Why do I pay taxes and fees?

Q. Why do I pay taxes and fees?   Although unlimited calling is free with PulseOne, users are required to pay monthly taxes and fees. Why? Telecommunication is a highly regulated industry and subject to many laws, regulations and taxes at the city, county, state, province and federal levels. As a result, Ooma charges applicable taxes and fees so that we as a company comply with laws and regulations mandated by the government. These taxes and fees are split into the following categories:

  • Regulatory compliance fee
  • 911 service fee
  • Federal universal service charge (U.S. customers only)
  • State or province and local taxes, fees and surcharges
