Trademark fee changes

On Jan. 14, 2017, we changed our processing and service fees. USPTO correspondence sent prior to Jan. 14, 2017 do not reflect our current fees. Fees listed below supersede fees listed on previous correspondence regardless of when the correspondence was received. See a complete listing of the changes.

Paper filing:

All fees paid for paper filings have increased. The per-class fee for an initial application filed on paper is now $600. Per class fees have increased anywhere from $75 to $200 (per class, where applicable) for paper filings. 

 Electronic filing:

The per-class fee for an initial application for registration filed using the regular Trademark Electronic Application System (TEAS) option is now $400.  This increase also applies to requests for extension of protection and subsequent designations filed under the Madrid Protocol.  15 U.S.C. 1141e; Madrid Protocol Article 8(7)(a).  

The per-class fee for requesting an extension for an electronically filed statement of use is now $125.  The fee for filing affidavits under Sections 8 and 71 is now $125 per class. The processing fee for an application that no longer meets the TEAS Plus or TEAS RF filing requirements is now $125 per class.

Trademark Trial and Appeal Board:

Six fees for initiating a proceeding have increased. Four new fees have been established for requesting extensions for filing a notice of opposition. 

We have changed our fees to better serve you.

We have made these changes to better align fees with full costs, to protect the integrity of the register by incentivizing more timely filing or examination and more efficient resolution of appeals and trials, and to promote the efficiency of the trademark process, in large part through lower-cost electronic filing options.
