Prepaid Wireless Surcharge Rate for 2018

SEPTEMBER 18, 2017 (LINCOLN, NEB.) — The Nebraska Prepaid Wireless Surcharge rate for the period January 1, 2018, through December 31, 2018, will remain at the current rate of 1.0%.

The rate is determined by the Nebraska Department of Revenue and is a percentage of two surcharge rates established by the Nebraska Public Service Commission:

  • The Enhanced Wireless 911 surcharge, and
  • The Telecommunications Relay System surcharge.

The Nebraska Prepaid Wireless Surcharge applies to retail sales of prepaid wireless telecommunications services, including sales of prepaid mobile phones, prepaid phone cards, and the recharging of those prepaid phones and cards. The surcharge is used to assist Nebraska communities in providing emergency 911 services and in providing a statewide system for specialized telecommunications equipment for qualified hearing‑impaired persons.
