Cahill Secures Victory for Cable One in Arizona State Tax Court
Date: 12/05/11Cahill secured another victory on behalf of Cable One Inc. in connection with the Arizona State Department of Revenue's classification of Cable One as a telecommunications company. The Arizona State Department of Revenue claimed that Cable One should be classified as a telecommunications company for tax purposes because of its provision of VoIP services. Cahill argued Cable One is not a telecommunications company as it does not own communications transmission facilities and Cable One does not provide public telephone or telecommunications exchange for compensation to effect two-way communications.
The Superior Court Arizona granted Cable One's Motion for Summary Judgment. The victory is the third of its kind in 2011 for Cable One. Earlier this year, Cahill was victorious in appeals for Cable One in connection with the Iowa Department of Revenue and the State Tax Commission of Missouri's reclassification of Cable One as a telephone company and in the Missouri Federal District Court concerning Pole Attachment Fees that were imposed on Cable One by utility pole owner, Ameren Missouri.
