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 bill would establish a charge of $0.50 per retail purchase of prepaid wireless services that allow access to the 911 system, with such charge also adjusted proportionately with any change to the wireless E-911 surcharge on postpaid wireless services. 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. Read the Bill »
