CLIENT BULLETIN: USPTO plans Trademark application fee increases

crowley-client-bulletin
Trademark application fee increases scheduled for January 14, 2017

As 2017 is fast approaching, we wanted to make sure you are aware that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) is increasing some of their fees in 2017.

Effective January 14, 2017, the fee for a trademark application using the online TEAS Regular application will increase to $400 per-class of goods/services (a $75 increase).

It also looks like the USPTO is trying to dissuade people from using paper filings – as those costs are significantly increasing across the board – the fee to file a paper application is increasing by $225 to $600 per-class!

The good news, however, is that if you are requesting an extension of time to file a statement of use with regards to a trademark application, the per-class fee for electronic filings is being reduced by $25 to $125.

We generally try to use the TEAS Reduced Fee (TEAS RF) application whenever possible to submit trademark applications for our clients. The USPTO fee for a TEAS RF application will remain at $275 per- class.

As a reminder, the TEAS RF requirements are:

  • Provide a valid e-mail address
  • Authorize the USPTO to send e-mail correspondence concerning the application
  • Agree to use the Trademark Electronic Application System when filing any relevant application-related submissions.

Failure to comply with these requirements will incur an additional processing fee of $50 per class.
