FY 1999 Commercial Wireless Regulatory Fees; Correction
In our Public Notice, mimeo number 94380, dated August 2, 1999, we make clarifications and corrections
1. The chart on page 2 lists CMRS Cellular Radio Licensees separately from the CMRS Mobile Service Type of Fee and assigns it a separate Fee Code. This was done as a convenience to the Wireless Telecommunications Bureau in tracking fee payments for the Cellular Radio Service.
2. The chart on page 2 is corrected to read as follows:
3. The last paragraph on page 5 and footnote number 1 are corrected to read:
WHO MUST PAY: CMRS cellular providers (common carriers providing cellular radio service to the public), CMRS mobile service licensees (common carriers authorized under Parts 22, 24, 27, 80 and 90 to offer land-based or air-to- ground mobile telephone or paging services to the public)1, and CMRS messaging licensees (authorized under Parts 22, 24, and 90). The CMRS messaging fee category will also include all SMR systems authorized for operations with less than 10 MHz bandwidth. Governments and nonprofit entities (exempt under Section 501 of the Internal Revenue Code) are not required to pay regulatory fees and should not submit payment. The Commission requires that each exempt entity submit, or have on file with the Commission, a current IRS Determination Letter documenting its nonprofit status, a certification of governmental authority, or certification from a governmental authority attesting to its exempt status.FEE PAYMENT PROCEDURES FOR CMRS SERVICE PROVIDERS
