2011 Regulatory Fees due September 14


The FCC has announced that regulatory fees for the 2011 Fiscal Year are due no later than Wednesday, September 14, 2011. Its Fee Filer system is now accepting fee payments.

The payment process must begin through the Commission’s on-line Fee Filer system, which may be accessed at (see full alert below for link), by entry of a FCC Registration Number and password. Payment may then be made on-line with a credit card, by mail or by wire transfer.

This year, for the first time, the FCC will not mail notifications to each licensee, as it had done in the past. Rather, it will be posting the information on a fees search page, which is not yet operative. When it becomes available, the fees search page may be accessed at (see full alert below for link). Based on previous years’ experiences, we assume that the FCC search page display will not include broadcast auxiliaries, for each of which an additional $10 fee must be paid. However, auxiliaries for which fees were paid in the past year should appear in the Fee Filer account.

Please see full alert below for more information.
