The purposes for the requirements are to facilitate: (1) The statutory provision that non-profit entities be exempt from payment of regulatory fees; and (2) the FCC’s ability to audit regulatory fee payment compliance. In order to develop a Schedule of Regulatory Fees, the FCC must, as accurately as possible, estimate the number of fee payment entities and distribute the costs. These estimates must be adjusted to account for any licensees or regulatees that are exempt from payment of regulatory fees. The FCC, therefore, requires all licensees and regulatees that claim exemption as non-profit entities to provide one-time only documentation sufficient to establish their non-profit status. Further, the FCC is requesting that it be similarly notified if for any reason that status changes. The documentation necessary to provide to the Commission will likely take the form of an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Determination Letter, a state charter indicating non-profit status, proof of church affiliation indicating tax exempt status, etc. The FCC is requiring licensees or regulatees to maintain and to make available, upon request, for inspection such records they would normally keep in the course of doing business. This will enable the FCC to conduct any audits deemed appropriate to determine whether fee payments were made correctly, and will help ensure compliance with the FCC fee exemption policies.
