The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) governs VoIP and other telecommunications services in the United States. This includes regulation of fee structure and compliance with different rules across industry and government. Service providers must contribute to the Universal Service Fund, a source for landline and VoIP phone access to underserved areas and low-income Americans, and rural healthcare initiatives and school systems. The FCC also ensures that communication services are accessible to customers with hearing impairments or speaking difficulties. This can be accomplished through caption services, text-to-voice, and relay services, among others.
Understanding the FCC’s role in the taxes and fees associated with your VoIP service is essential. These are legally permitted fees that VoIP providers charge each customer. State, regional, and local governments also charge taxes or fees, which vary by location.
