B. If a home service provider charges a customer an amount of tax for mobile telecommunications services and the customer believes that the charge is incorrect, the customer shall notify the home service provider in writing of the contested charge. The written notification shall include the customer's account name and number, the street address for the customer's primary place of use, a description of the contested charge and other information that the home service provider reasonably requires to process the notification.
