Carrier Property Tax and Federal Regulatory Recovery Fee

The Carrier Property Tax is applied to interstate and international services, fixed monthly charges and variable usage fees. CenturyLink recovers a portion of the property taxes it must pay to provide telecommunications services to businesses and homes around the country by applying an allocation charge to customers' monthly bills.

The Federal Regulatory Recovery fee is a percentage of interstate and international usage. It recovers amount paid to the federal government for regulatory costs and telecommunication services for the hearing-impaired.

Other ways it may appear on the bill
