Annual report for telecommunications companies not classified as competitive.

(1) Annual reports for companies not classified as competitive. The commission will distribute an annual report form, a regulatory fee form, and financial information templates. A telecommunications company not classified as competitive must:
(a) Return the annual report and regulatory fee forms and pay its regulatory fee, no later than May 1st of each year;
(b) Provide total number of access lines (as required on the annual report form referred to in (a) of this subsection); and
(c) Complete the financial information templates. The financial information templates include income statement, balance sheet, and rate base items. The templates also include sections on total company and results of operations for Washington and Washington intrastate. The commission will provide the templates each year and the company must return the completed templates as follows:
(i) Class A companies must file the required financial information templates no later than May 1st each year.
(ii) Class B companies must file the required financial information templates no later than July 1st of each year.
(iii) Class B companies are not exempt from these filing requirements.
(2) Methods used to determine Washington intrastate results of operations must be acceptable to the commission.
(3) This rule does not supersede any reporting requirements specified in a commission rule or order, or limit the commission's authority to request additional information.
(4) Regulatory fees. The telecommunications annual regulatory fee is set by statute at one-tenth of one percent of the first $50,000 of gross intrastate operating revenue plus four-tenths of one percent of any gross intrastate operating revenue in excess of $50,000.
(a) The maximum regulatory fee is assessed each year, unless the commission issues an order establishing the regulatory fee at an amount less than the statutory maximum.
(b) The minimum regulatory fee that a company must pay is $150.
(c) The commission does not grant extensions for payment of regulatory fees.
(d) If a company does not pay its regulatory fee by May 1st, the commission will assess an automatic late fee of two percent of the amount due, plus one percent interest for each month the fee remains unpaid.
