Understanding the Property Tax Allocation

This tax is applied to interstate and international services and to the fixed monthly charges, as well as the 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 surcharge charge to customers' monthly bills.

Other ways it may appear on the bill

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