The FCC is once again providing a software program for payers of 50 or more individual regulatory fees. It can be used in place of submitting the detailed data.
The software is available to any FCC client paying for multiple regulatory fees. A minimum of 50 payments is required. Users of this software must file a 3.5" data diskette containing the exported data file with their fee payment and a "Fee Remittance Advice" (FCC Form 159) which is now a part of the software program. The data diskette, completed Form 159, and your remittance should be mailed to:
P.O. Box 358835
Pittsburgh, PA 15251-5835
The data diskettes are not acceptable unless accompanied by a completed FCC Form 159. The new software program is designed to complete most of the fields for you. However, you must complete Sections E to certify the accuracy of the data, and Section F if you are paying by credit card.
This year's software is compatible with last year's software, and can be run under Windows 3 or Windows 95. The MAC version is no longer acceptable. Use of earlier software versions may result in incorrect payment of fees due to changes in the FCC Regulatory Fee Schedule. This new software program contains the new Regulatory Fee schedule and includes instructions on how to replace the older table. The new software permits:
The contractor will, for a fee, furnish diskette copies of the software in Zip format which includes instructions for installing and using the software. The contractor offers a variety of shipment and payment choices.
A telephone HELP LINE is available and is staffed 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM (EST), at (202) 418-0554, on business days. Assistance is offered in downloading, installing and operating the software. This HELP LINE service will end at 5:00 PM on September 30, 1998.
