Understanding the Property Tax Allocation

The Property Tax Allocation (also sometimes called the Carrier Property Tax) is applied to interstate and international services, fixed monthly charges, and variable usage fees. CenturyLink applies an allocation charge to customers' monthly bills in order to recover a portion of the property taxes it must pay to provide telecommunications services to businesses and homes around the country.

Other ways it may appear on the bill

This surcharge may appear on the bill as "Prop TX/Reg Fees/USF Admn".
