Description

Prepaid wireless E-911 charges; collection by retailers.  Establishes the rate and procedures for the collection and remittance of prepaid wireless E-911 charges by sellers of prepaid wireless service in the Commonwealth.

The Department of Taxation would be required to establish registration and payment procedures with respect to prepaid wireless E-911 charges that are substantially similar to those applicable to the sales tax. Retail sellers would be allowed to retain a discount of five percent of collected prepaid wireless E-911 charges. The provisions of the bill would apply to retail transactions occurring on or after January 1, 2011. Amends § 56-484.12, § 56-484.17, § 56-484.17:1, of the Code of Virginia. Read the Bill »
