Common carrier licensees and permittees who provide interstate telephone operator services must pay those fees. These regulatory fees are based upon a percentage of the carrier's interstate revenues. The information is necessary to determine how much each carrier's interstate revenues are available to the carrier by extraction from another voluminous collection approved under OMB Control Number 3060-0855, Telecommunications Reporting Worksheet, FCC Form 499-A. The requested FCC Form 159-W is intended to provide a convenient format for documenting the extracted interstate revenue information and to complete the simple calculation of the fee amount due.
