What should I expect on my first bill? Why are there partial month fees?
You may have noticed that your first invoice is slightly higher than expected. Your first bill is not typical because it may contain some of the following charges related to the setup or a change to your service:
Prorated charges: We bill customers in advance for their services. A normal bill shows one month of charges in advance. Your first invoice will likely include some prorated charges to cover the services you've used since signing up, and the next full month of charges (anticipating the next billing cycle).
For example, if your bill is generated on the 15th of the month and your Local service started 10 days before the 15th, then your invoice will contain a charge for 10 days of service plus the full next month.
One-time charges: When setting up or or changing service, sometimes there is a one-time charge (such as activation, equipment, or change fee).
Taxes and surcharges: Typically, taxes and surcharges are a percentage of your total bill and since your bill is higher than normal, your taxes and fees will be higher than normal as well.
AutoPay is the process that makes bill pay a breeze. AutoPay will automatically charge your monthly account balance to your selected payment option. Once you complete the easy initial set-up, it means no work, no worries, and no late payments.

Taxes and Surcharges
Why am I being charged taxes and surcharges?
All telecommunication companies are required by various governing bodies at the federal, state, and local levels to collect a variety of taxes, fees and surcharges. The money collected through these charges is passed along directly to the governing body that mandates the charge to support programs like the Emergency 911 Dispatch Centers.
