Regulatory Fees Payments Now Due

Posted on August 28th, 2013 by

It’s that time of year for commercial stations to pay annual regulatory fees.  The FCC’s automated filing and payment system, called “Fee Filer” is now available for filing and payment of FY 2013 regulatory fees.  Stations need their FRN and password to log in and properly submit payment. Those payments must be received by 11:59 pmEDT on September 20, 2013.

In most instances, regulatory fees increased slightly over last year.  Stations should remember to include auxilliary licenses in their payments (an extra $10 for each).  Late filings are subject to a 25% penalty, so paying on time is important.
