Important Announcements

The OUSF contribution factor for FY 2018, which begins July 1, 2018 and ends June 30, 2019, is 1.20% as approved by the Commission’s Interim Order in Cause No. PUD 201800005.
On May 9, 2016 the Oklahoma Legislature approved House Bill 2616 which, among other items, establishes an assessment method for Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) services. Effective with the May 2016 revenue month, all providers of VoIP services are required to begin reporting VoIP revenues for OUSF assessment purposes. For Interconnected VoIP services, contributing providers shall, consistent with the methodology of the Federal Communications Commission, identify intrastate retail revenue subject to the OUSF/OLF assessment through 1) direct assignment; 2) a company specific traffic study; or 3) the inverse of the FCC safe harbor, currently 35.1%. A contributing provider must file an application with the Commission and receive approval to utilize any methodology other than the safe harbor calculation.
