** e-911 Surcharge Changes **
Effective Aug. 1, 2015, the tax rate for pre-paid telecommunication services and wireless telephones subject to the pre-paid wireless emergency-911 surcharge (pre-paid e-911 surcharge) will change from $1.00 to $1.65 per retail transaction. This surcharge is collected on each retail transaction regardless of whether the service or pre-paid wireless telephone is purchased in person, by telephone, through the Internet or by any other method. The pre-paid e-911 surcharge is to be charged and collected by the retailer in addition to any other charges or fees and is not to be included for purposes of calculating sales tax.

Also effective Aug. 1, the discount available to retailers that timely remit pre-paid e-911 surcharge returns and payments will go from 3 percent to 1.5 percent. This discount is separate from the 1 percent discount available for timely remitting sales tax returns and payments and will automatically be calculated by the department.

Additionally, retailers are responsible for keeping records detailing non-retail sales transactions, which may be requested for review by the department.
