Regulatory Fee Deadline September 14, 2011; Use of Fee Filer Mandatory

Annual regulatory fees must be paid to the FCC no later than 11:59 p.m. EDT on September 14, 2011. Late payments are subject to an automatic 25% penalty.  All annual regulatory fee payments must be submitted through the FCC’s Fee Filer System. Access to the Fee Filer system, which allows users to review, create, update, change and pay fees, requires the submission of a valid FCC Registration Number (FRN) and password. 

Most licensees no longer receive regulatory fee assessment notices from the FCC. Licensees are responsible for calculating and remitting their annual regulatory fees within the established deadline.  Licensees can view their bills on the Fee Filer system, which is located at www.fcc.gov/feefiler. Instructions for remitting the fees are provided at http://www.fcc.gov/fees/regfees.html#how
