FCC 2011 Annual Regulatory Fees Due by Sept. 14, 2011


The FCC has now released its Public Notice formally announcing the payment deadline for the 2011 Annual Regulatory Fees, which will be due by 11:59 pm E.T. on September 14, 2011. The fees must be processed electronically using the FCC's Fee Filer website, which can be accessed here. That site is now ready to accept the payment of the 2011 Regulatory Fees, and licensees must log-on to the Fee Filer website using their FRN (FCC Registration Number) and password to review the fees that have been pre-populated in for that particular licensee. While the list of stations and authorizations reflected in the database should be similar to the list from last year, licensees should carefully review the information and ensure that all stations and authorizations held by the licensee are included. In particular, stations acquired during the year or new broadcast auxiliaries obtained during the year may not appear on the list and may need to be added. Please note, the FCC will not mail a bill or a reminder to broadcast stations this year, so it is the responsibility of each licensee to determine the extent of its reg fee obligation.
