About how we bill taxes and surcharges

We use the Service Address for each wireless service line to determine how we bill taxes, other governmental charges and Verizon surcharges. These may vary by the state and locality of your service address or addresses. These include:

  • Government taxes and other charges, which we bill and collect. These are set by federal, state and local governments and are subject to change from time to time.

  • Verizon wireless surcharges, which include a Regulatory Charge (which helps defray various government charges we pay including government number administration and license fees); (ii) a Federal Universal Service Charge (and, if applicable, a State Universal Service Charge) to recover charges imposed on us by the government to support universal service; and (iii) an Administrative and Telco Recovery Charge, which helps defray certain expenses we incur, including: charges we, or our agents, pay local telephone companies for delivering calls from our customers to their customers; fees and assessments on our network facilities and services; property taxes; and the costs we incur responding to regulatory obligations. These surcharges are Verizon wireless charges, not taxes or government imposed fees. These charges, including the amount and what’s included, are subject to change from time to time.

Note: Some taxes and surcharges apply to only a portion of your monthly charges, depending on your plan, features and device.
