Billing with 2 different Federal Cost Recovery Fee charged, wondering why plz help

Dear Comcast customer care team,


Hope you are all doing well.  We are under Comcast VoiceEdge (Enterprise) contract and a foreign embassy with tax exempt.  The previous invoices were all fine with normal charges.  In the July invoice we just received, there are two different Federal Cost Recovery Fee charged, $9.47 (extra) and $3.09 (our regular one) on page 5 of Tax, Surcharges and Fees.  Would someone kindly take a detail look in our new bill (invoice # 104152886) and help explain how this extra charge occurred?  We need to explain any abnormal fees/charges to our accountant before processing any payment.   Thank you and hope someone can get back to me at your earliest conveniences.

Thank you so much for being an amazing Comcast Business Enterprise customer. We are very honored by your business! Just so you are aware, the Federal Cost Recovery Fee is a fee assessed by Comcast to recover the cost of certain federal, state, and/or local impositions related to Voice, Video, and Ethernet Transport (ENS, EVPL, EPL) services. It is neither government mandated nor a tax. This fee includes components that may be calculated based on access lines, subscribers, or percentage of applicable charges. The amount may vary each month. Please let me know if this helps.
