The 9-1-1 Funding and Reform Act requires each PSAP to certify its population to the Oklahoma Tax Commission in order to receive wireless fees beginning January 1, 2017. A Map of your PSAP is available by emailing email@example.com. The instructions, a form letter and the proposed population for your PSAP appear below.
Most jurisdictions assess their own landline fee. Click here for the list showing the rate and the remission address. Those fees are remitted directly to the jurisdiction assessing the fee.
Notice All VOIP and Wireless Service Providers:
On January 1, 2017, the rules governing the payment of 9-1-1 fees will change.
On that date, the wireless and VOIP fee will increase to 75 cents per month. The Oklahoma Tax Commission will begin collecting and remitting 9-1-1 fees. You may receive notice from the Tax Commission explaining what they will require in order to remit your fees. If you do not, you can contact their taxpayer assistance line.
