The Telephone Line Tax shall be billed to the telephone subscriber by the service supplier with its regular bill or as otherwise in accordance with the service supplier's normal billing procedures, and service suppliers shall collect such taxes as are remitted from telephone subscribers so billed on behalf of the City of San José.

The tax required to be collected by service suppliers shall be added to the service supplier's billings to subscribers.
