Deposit account rules and information

Deposit accounts are pre-paid accounts that attorneys, agents, and the general public can establish to conveniently pay fees to the USPTO. This eliminates the need to send payment by check, credit card, or other methods each time a fee is required. An added benefit is that a pre-authorization to charge a deposit account may also be used to satisfy any deficiency in payment, thus preserving the original filing date or payment date.
