What is the filing fee for a trademark?


The filing fees for a trademark application are as follows:

(1) $275 per class for a TEAS Plus application that meets the requirements of 37 C.F.R. §§2.22 and 2.23;

(2) $325 per class for an application filed electronically using the Trademark Electronic Application System (TEAS); or

(3) $375 per class for an application filed on paper.

These fees will be charged not only when a new application is filed, but also when payments are made to add classes to an existing application.

If your application is filed based on a bona fide intent to use the mark in commerce, additional forms and filing will be required at a later time.

We recommend that you file your application through TEAS, at http://www.uspto.gov/teas/index.html, and pay the fee using a credit card, existing USPTO deposit account, or electronic funds transfer (EFT). If you file on paper, checks or money orders should be made payable to the Director of the United States Patent and Trademark Office and mailed to:

Commissioner for Trademarks
P.O. Box 1451
Alexandria, Virginia 22313-1451

PLEASE NOTE: Fees are subject to change and should therefore be verified before submission to the USPTO.  You may obtain the current schedule of fees at http://www.uspto.gov/go/fees/index.html.
