Something like that. IANAL either, but I think there are still lots of
people flying under the radar on this issue. If the underlying carrier
is doing the taxes and USF and such then there might not be any red flag
there where somebody would notice.
That doesn't mean your compliant with the law and it doesn't mean the
correct taxes are being paid.
I did learn at one point that if your USF contributions total less than
$10,000 / year that you're a "de minimus" provider and you're just
supposed to keep the money. You might want to look into getting it done
right....There must be a level of volume where the legal and accounting
expense is covered by the USF fees you would have to collect.

IANAL, but I believe the deciding factor is who bills the customer for
the voice services.

We resell some SIP trunks with PBX we install on our contract services
side. We are not the SIP provider in any way, but we do get paid. if
its traversing our ISP network does that technically make us a voice
provider, or are we still able to hide out as an ISP
If you only see yourself as part of the team but you don't see your
team as part of yourself you have already failed as part of the team.
