Dual Party Relay Service Assessment
Updated November 10, 2022
The Iowa Dual Party Relay Service (DPRS) law found in Iowa Code chapter 477C requires wireless carriers and wire-line local exchange carriers providing telecommunications service in the state to pay three cents ($0.03) per month for each telecommunications service phone number provided in Iowa.
As of January 2022, telecommunications companies report their revenue-producing telecommunications service phone numbers for the previous calendar year in IUB 24/7, instead of via Google Forms. All companies maintain a company profile in IUB, which offers a single place to submit required information and DPRS reports. The reports are made available in January and the annual filing deadline is April 1. Invoices are then issued for the assessment amount owed.
For instructions on using IUB 24/7, please visit the Information About IUB 24/7 webpage. Instructions on creating a company profile in IUB 24/7 can be found on the IUB 24/7 for Telecommunications Companies webpage.
If you are unsure whether your company has already filed a report with the IUB, please access your company profile in IUB 24/7, call 515.725.7300, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
To report for a prior period, please email email@example.com and a link to the form will be provided to you. Please include in your email the reporting quarter(s) for which a form link is requested.
For additional information on payments, filing, reporting and more, please refer to the Telecom FAQ for IUB 24/7.
Additionally, see IUB rules in 199 IAC chapter 17, Assessments.
