Alaska levies a telephone cooperative tax on gross revenue of qualified telephone cooperatives under AS 10.25. The Division collects taxes from cooperatives.

The telephone cooperative tax rate is based on revenue and the length of time in which the cooperative has furnished telephone service to consumers as follows:

Telephone cooperatives file calendar year returns that are due with payment before March 1 of the following year.

All qualified telephone cooperatives are subject to the cooperative tax. Cooperatives pay the telephone cooperative tax in lieu of corporate net income tax.

The Division deposits revenue from the telephone cooperative tax into the General Fund.

Telephone cooperative taxes sourced from within municipalities are shared 100% to respective municipalities less the amount expended by the state for collection of taxes.

The state retains telephone cooperative taxes sourced from outside of municipalities.
