Other Expenses Not Listed

Name Description

Arkansas Use Tax

We must pay Arkansas use tax on taxable purchases. Our out-of-state vendors are not required to collect or remit the taxes on our behalf. We must calculate and pay use tax ourselves. We have estimated our tax obligation based on our repack budget.

Security Cameras

A set of security cameras to prevent the need for on-site security, paid personnel to oversee the tower crew, and additional storage costs.

Project-related Insurance

Insurance costs directly related to the KVTH-DT repack project.
