And another thing

Here's another "feature" of the 471 that gets my goat. You can't put anything in Item 23f, Annual non-recurring (one-time) charges, for Basic Maintenance FRNs. Meanwhile, in the real world, many manufacturers' service contracts have one annual payment. So now I've got to divide by 12, and my clients always seem to lose four cents on the deal.

Memo to USAC: don't assume recurring services require recurring payments. Even better, don't try to make synonyms out of "monthly" and "recurring," or "annual" and "one-time."

And I've already pointed out the dissonance with the online Item 21 Attachment.
