Employing enhanced zip codes to assign each 7 street address, address range, post office box, or post office 8 box range in the dealer's service area to a specific local 9 taxing jurisdiction. 10 2. If an enhanced zip code overlaps boundaries of 11 municipalities or counties, or if an enhanced zip code cannot 12 be assigned to the service address because the service address 13 is in a rural area or a location without postal delivery, the 14 dealer of communications services or its database vendor shall 15 assign the affected service addresses to one specific local 16 taxing jurisdiction within such zip code based on a reasonable 17 methodology. A methodology satisfies this subparagraph if the 18 information used to assign service addresses is obtained by 19 the dealer or its database vendor from: 20 a. A database provided by the department; 21 b. A database certified by the department under 22 subsection (3); 23 c. Responsible representatives of the relevant local 24 taxing jurisdictions; or 25 d. The United States Census Bureau or the United 26 States Postal Service. 27 (d) Employing a database of street addresses or other 28 assignments that does not meet the requirements of paragraphs 29 (a)-(c), but meets the criteria set forth in paragraph (3)(a) 30 at the time of audit by the department. 31 (e) Any database of enhanced zip codes which is used 2 8:49 AM 04/19/04 s1338.cp.01

Notwithstanding any provision of law to the contrary, 4 if a dealer submits an application for certification on or 5 before January 1, 2005, the 180-day time limit set forth in 6 paragraph (3)(d) does not apply. During the time the 7 application is under consideration by the department or, if 8 the application is denied, until the denial is no longer 9 subject to administrative or judicial review or until a later 10 date fixed by order of the reviewing court: 11 1. For purposes of computing the amount of the 12 deduction to which such dealer is entitled under s. 202.28, 13 the dealer shall be deemed to have used a certified database 14 pursuant to paragraph (1)(b). 15 2. In the event that such application is approved, 16 such approval shall be deemed to have been effective on the 17 date of the application or July 1, 2005, whichever is later. 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 3 8:49 AM 04/19/04 s1338.cp.01
