DIGEST OF SB 52 (Updated March 14, 2002 11:53 PM - DI 52)

Implements the federal Mobile Telecommunications Sourcing Act, which provides that taxes, charges, and fees levied on wireless telephone service shall be paid to the jurisdiction where the customer's primary use of the service occurs, irrespective of where the wireless telephone service originates, terminates, or passes through. Makes conforming changes in the statutes concerning the sales tax on intrastate telecommunications service and the monthly emergency wireless enhanced 911 fee on wireless service. Specifies that implementation of the federal act does not authorize the imposition of new taxes, charges, or fees that are not otherwise authorized by law. Authorizes a provider of wireless telephone service, in the absence of an electronic data base provided by the department of state revenue or another designated data base provider, to rely on enhanced ZIP codes for purposes of assigning customer addresses to taxing jurisdictions. Provides that "bundled" offerings of taxable and nontaxable wireless service are considered taxable unless the provider of the service provides information that supports the nontaxability of a part of those services.
