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.
