This is a reminder to our clients of the upcoming deadline for filing the FCC Form 499-Q and supporting documentation. All telecommunications carriers that provide interstate telecommunications services are required to file an FCC Form 499-Q Telecommunications Reporting Worksheet with the Commission on or before Friday, May 1, 2020. Carriers must provide revenue information for January 1 through March 31, 2020, and projections for July 1 through September 30, 2020.

The Universal Service Administration Company (“USAC”) made some minor modifications in the Form 499-Q filing requirements from the last quarterly filing date. Interconnected VoIP and CMRS providers that rely on a traffic study to report interstate revenues no longer need to include the traffic study in the quarterly reporting filing. However, these providers must save a copy of this study to submit them as documentation to report interstate and international jurisdictions on the FCC Form 499-A.

The form and filing instructions may be found at https://www.usac.org/service-providers/contributing-to-the-usf/forms-to-file/.
