V1 VoIP Is Tax Compliant in All 50 States

Death and taxes. In the VoIP industry it is imperative that you remain tax compliant in all 50 US States. It might surprise you how many companies are not. Carriers that are not tax compliant are putting their business and customers at risk. It is the responsibility of the carrier to collect the proper taxes if the reseller does not. Choosing a carrier that is not tax compliant could have very large financial consequence for the reseller. Customers either don’t know about tax compliancies are assume they are dependent on their carrier to collect the proper taxes as they are not fully aware of what taxes they should be collecting.

Although the barrier to entry for VoIP is quite low, the tax burden associated with VoIP services is becoming a large burden for most resellers. As revenue shifts from traditional phone service to VoIP telephony, states and municipalities are finding their tax base and revenues eroding. They are responding to this shift by aggressively going after VoIP resellers and carriers.

V1 VoIP is 100% complianct. This status is a huge benefit for our resellers and customers. We not only provide great quality and pricing, but to also provide those services that makes our customers’ life easier. It is common to hear a customer state they don’t have to pay those taxes because another other carrier doesn’t collect those. Ultimately, the customer can be held responsible and that is a huge risk to by not dealing with compliant providers.

ANI and ALI Database Differences

V1 VoIP answers questions about emergency information locations and the differences between ANI and ALI databases

What is the difference between the ALI and ANI databases and how can they effect emergency response?

The Automatic Number Identification (ANI) is the automatic display at the PSAP of the telephone number associated with the line which called 911. Each telephone number and the physical location to which it corresponds are stored in an Automatic Location Identification (ALI) database, managed by the local exchange carrier.

When providing phone service to either businesses or residences, customers need to know important information regarding their ability to make emergency telephone calls. V1 VoIP is committed to offering our VoIP providers, resellers and wholesale agents answers to their questions about emergency information.

Let’s say someone calls 911. The 911 operater will answer the call, look at their monitor, see the adddress of the caller and says “help is on the way.” In that 911 call, the PSAP uses the ANI to retrieve the caller’s physical address from the ALI database. Additionally, the ANI acts as a callback number should the PSAP lose its connection to the distressed caller. Both ANI and ALI are key capabilities of E911 service.

With traditional E911 service, ALI records are stored in regional ALI databases, and are usually administered by the local exchange carrier (LEC). When a phone’s location changes, the regional ALI database must be revised with new location information which can take up to 48 hours to update.

Due to the capabilities of cellular and IP phones, it can be difficult to ensure that the regional ALI is up-to-date. Whereas traditional telephone numbers are static, IP phones can be moved easily, forcing the user to notify a network administrator, who in turn must contact the LEC to update the phone’s location in the regional ALI database. Unfortunately, this process takes time to implement, and may be forgotten entirely by the user.

Additionally, IP phones can relocate to regions served by different ALI databases entirely. A VoIP service provider or enterprise would then need agreements with each LEC to update different regional ALI databases as phones move around the country.

Ultimately, it is difficult for regional ALI databases to stay current with nomadic VoIP users, and there is no guarantee that the VoIP caller’s accurate location information will be available in a crisis.
