Kelley Drye & Warren LLP
Please be reminded of the upcoming due dates for the Reports listed below:

Note that the below reports are due on August 1 but, because the filing date falls on a weekend, the reports will be due on the next business day which is August 3.

Form 499-Q: Quarterly Telecommunications Reporting Worksheet

Carriers providing interstate and international telecommunications that are required to contribute to federal universal service support mechanisms must report their historical end user and wholesale revenues and projected end user revenues for each calendar quarter by filing Form 499-Q with the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) on a quarterly basis.

The next Form 499-Q is due August 1, 2020. It must be submitted electronically using USAC’s E-File system. A contributor must file a revised Form 499-Q within 45 calendar days of the August 1 deadline (or the next business day thereafter) if it discovers an error in the data it reported.

The August Form 499-Q filing covers historical revenue data for April 1 through June 30 of the current year and projected data for October 1 through December 31 of the current year.  Providers of interconnected Voice over Internet Protocol service and commercial mobile radio service that rely upon traffic studies to report their revenues on the Form 499-Q must submit the traffic studies with the Form 499-Q filing.

Note that the FCC actively enforces the Form 499-Q filing and accompanying Universal Service Fund (USF) contribution requirement, and it may impose monetary penalties for failure to file or make timely USF contributions.

Form 502: Numbering Resource Utilization/Forecast Report

Section 52.15(f) of the FCC’s rules requires carriers that receive numbers from the North American Numbering Plan Administrator (NANPA), pooling administrator, or other carrier, to file Form 502 twice annually to report numbering usage and forecast future numbering resource needs.

The next Form 502 must be submitted to NANPA by August 1, 2020, and reflects information for the preceding 6-month period ending June 30, 2019. Form 502 can be found here.
