We Eliminate Erroneous Telecom Taxes, Fees, & Surcharges
Kairos Partners was formed through the merger of Kairos Group and Opportunity Associates. Both firms have worked on joint projects, over the years, and now have joined forces to form Kairos Partners.
Kairos Partners’ mission is to eliminate erroneous telecom taxes, fees, and surcharges. Our highly specialized telecom tax recovery team – composed of individuals with expertise in accounting, tax law, and telecommunications – researches and identifies telecom tax reduction opportunities and then shepherds them to a successful resolution, resulting in significant cost savings to our clients. During the past 20 years, we have saved our clients in excess of $100 million and have represented hundreds of companies, including more than 100 companies in the Fortune 2000.
KAIROS n.(KI-ROS): A specific period of time characterized by good fortune, urgency, and favorable opportunity. A KAIROS moment is typically one which must be seized or it will be lost. (Greek origin).
KAIROS Moment…in the telecommunications industry, there are unique opportunities that, if acted upon, can provide significant savings to large users of telecommunications services. However, as the word Kairos describes, these opportunities, which are often characterized by short durations, must be seized, or they will be lost.
RESULTS IN 90 DAYS
Throughout the last 20 years, we have saved our clients over $100 million.
Telecom carriers are required to collect federal, state and local taxes on the telecom services they sell. With over 80,000 state and local tax jurisdictions nationwide, the collective tax rate on telecom services often exceeds 25%, making the telecommunications industry one of the most heavily taxed industries in the United States.
Given the complexity and shear number of taxes on telecommunications services, the correct assessment of taxes is a daunting task for the telecom carriers. As a result, mistakes and over taxation are common occurrences.
Kairos Partners provides telecom consulting services to the some of the largest telecom spenders in the world. We successfully reduce telecom taxes, fees and surcharges through our knowledge of tax exemptions, tax caps, and taxation errors. We have also worked on several initiatives to eradicate taxes that have been illegally or fraudulently assessed.
If your organization spends over $1,000,000 per year on telecom services, there is a high probability that Kairos can significantly reduce your telecom taxes, fees and surcharges.
