Why do I have to pay monthly taxes and fees?

Telecommunication is a highly regulated industry and subject to many laws, regulations and taxes at the city, county, state, province and federal levels. Ooma charges applicable taxes and fees to comply with laws and regulations mandated by the government. These taxes and fees are split into the following categories: 

  • Regulatory compliance fee
  • 911 service fee
  • Federal universal service charge (U.S. customers only) 
  • State or province and local taxes, fees and surcharges

You can find your estimated tax on the Ooma webpages that also help you figure out your home phone savings or your business phone savings.
