S.C. Code of Laws
Pursuant to §23-47-50, a CMRS 911 charge is levied for each CMRS connection for which there is a mobile identification number containing an area code assigned to South Carolina by the North American Numbering Plan Administrator. The amount of the fee must be approved annually by the Revenue and Fiscal Affairs Office (RFA) at a level not to exceed the average monthly landline telephone 911 charges paid in South Carolina. The S.C. CMRS Advisory Committee and RFA may calculate the wireless 911 charge based upon a review of one or more months during the year preceding the calculation of the calculation of landline telephone charges paid in South Carolina.
Under §23-47-68, a prepaid wireless 911 charge is imposed in the amount equal to the average 911 charges calculated pursuant to §23-47-50 (above).
