INTRODUCTION

The authority for the Federal Communications Commission to impose and collect fees and associated charges is
contained in Title III, § 3001 of the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1989 (Public Law 101-39), § 8,
revising 47 U.S.C. § 158, which directs the Commission to prescribe charges for certain types of services it
provides to communications entities over which it has jurisdiction.
This Fee Filing Guide is considered a reference guide to identify and describe the entire fee filing requirements
for the Wireless Telecommunications Bureau. It is meant to be a handy reference of the services and requests
for FCC actions that are subject to a fee. The guide contains a breakdown of the types of applications, form
numbers, fee amounts, payment type codes, and the mailing address for each service provided.
If further information is required that cannot be answered in this guide, please consult the Commission's rules as
set forth in Title 47, Part 1, Subpart G, of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). Copies of the CFR may be
purchased from the U.S. Government Printing Office, Superintendent of Documents, Mail Stop SSOP,
Washington, DC 20402-9328, Telephone (202) 512-1800. Additional copies of this guide may be obtained
without charge by calling (202) 418-3676, outside the Washington area (800) 418-3676. All fees are subject to
modification as required by Congress.

FILING INFORMATION

If you wish to conduct business with the FCC, you need an FCC Registration number (FRN). This number is
mandatory for a filing and used to uniquely identify you in all transactions with the FCC. It is important to
have the FRN available when contacting or submitting documents to the FCC. Unless the payer and the
applicant are the same person or entity, a separate FRN number must be used for the payer and for the
applicant. If you are acting as an agent for an entity, and the remittance (i.e., check or credit card) carries
your name as an official designated to pay on behalf of the entity, you must include the entity's name both as
payer and application in order to use the same FRN. Failure to follow these instructions will result in your
application being returned as unprocessable.

OBTAINING YOUR FCC REGISTRATION NUMBER (FRN)

·
Go to www.fcc.gov, click FCC Registration Number (FRN) Commission Registration
System (CORES) link at the left of the page.
·
Check your pre-assigned number at www.fcc.gov, FCC Registration Number (FRN)
Commission Registration System (CORES) link at the left of the page.
·
File FCC 160, (CORES Registration). You may obtain the form at
http://www.fcc.gov/formpage.html, by calling the FCC at 1-877-480-3201 (TTY 717-
338-2824), or by calling the FCC’s Fax Information System by dialing (202) 418-0177,
catalog ID #3000160. Mailing instructions are on the form.
If you are unable to register electronically, you can still submit your application for a Registration Number
(FCC 160) directly to U. S. Bank (along with your filing documents and payment) or fax the FRN registration
form to the CORES Helpdesk at (202) 418-7869 for some filing procedures. U. S. Bank will register you and
you will receive a confirmation letter from the FCC through the U.S. Postal Service mail.

PASSWORD RESET

If you forget your password for your FRN:
·
Go to www.fcc.gov and click on the FCC Registration Number (FRN) Commission
Registration System (CORES) link at the left of the page and then click on UPDATE.
This will take you to where you originally registered. Under the block where you are to
enter your password, click on online password reset and the system will walk you through
to reset your password.
·
You can request a password reset at https://esupport.fcc.gov/password.htm.
·
You can request a Personal Security Question (PSQ) at https://esupport.fcc.gov/psq.htm
·
Questions regarding PSQ and password resets can be addressed by calling the FCC at 1-
877-480-3201
.

METHOD OF PAYMENT (DO NOT SEND CASH)

NOTE:

The U.S. Treasury will reject Credit Card transactions greater than $49,999.99. This limit includes
multiple transactions on the same Credit Card totaling more than this limit in a single day. For transactions
greater than $49,999.99, an alternative method of payment must be used. Payment methods can be found at
http://www.fcc.gov/fees.
{Reference: Treasury Bulletin No. 2005-03 (http://www.fms.treas.gov/TFM/vol1/bull.html).}
·

Online Payment

- Online credit card payments are encouraged. Online credit card
payment is an available option when filing electronic application submissions. The
Commission will accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover credit cards. If
you choose this method of combined filing/payment, do not send an FCC 159 to U. S. Bank.
·

Pay Fees

- Individual ULS applicants who have already submitted applications earlier but
- 2 -

did not pay while filing can use Pay Fees. Visit http://wireless.fcc.gov/uls and click on

Pay
Fees

under the ‘Quick Links’. For ULS users who submit a large volume of applications for
wireless licenses using Electronic Batch Filing (EBF), Pay Fees enable you to pay your fees
online by credit card and submit FCC 159 applications simultaneously. The Commission will
accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover credit cards.

The applicant must
remit payment within 10 calendar days of submitting the application, or the application
will be dismissed.

Payment received more than ten (10) days after electronic filing of an
application on a Bureau/Office electronic filing system (e.g.,

ULS) will be forfeited (see
§§1.934 and 1.1111).

If you cannot file electronically you may elect to file manually provided the radio service is
eligible for manual filing.

·

Mail In Payment

- Applicants can file online and not make a payment immediately and
print the FCC 159 provided at the end of the submission. The FCC 159 along with form of
payment should then be submitted to Federal Communications Commission, P. O. Box
979097, St. Louis, MO 63197-9000.

Again, the applicant must remit payment within 10
calendar days of submitting the application, or the application will be dismissed.


Payment received more than ten (10) days after electronic filing of an application on a
Bureau/Office electronic filing system (e.g.,

ULS) will be forfeited (see §§1.934 and
1.1111).

Payment of fees may be made by check, bank draft, money order, credit card or wire
transfer. If paying by check, bank draft, money order or wire transfer, your remittance must be
denominated in U.S. dollars, drawn on a U.S. financial institution and made payable to "FCC."
No postdated, altered or third party checks will be accepted. No checks will be accepted for
processing if older than six months. The Commission will accept Visa, MasterCard,
American Express, and Discover credit cards.
If paying by wire, applicants located in foreign countries should contact their local bank to determine what
U.S. financial institution their bank is affiliated with that will allow a transfer of funds. Please keep in mind
that there may be an additional transfer fee added from your bank for this service. If an additional cost is
required by your bank, and you have not included additional funds to cover this cost, it will be taken out of
the funds that will be transferred. This will result in your remaining transfer amount being insufficient to
cover the fee for the filing. Please check with your bank prior to completing this transaction to determine
their policy. For further instructions in making payment by wire see our website at
http://www.fcc.gov/fees/wiretran.html.
Payment of fees, fines, and other debts may also be made by electronic payment. There are two types of
electronic payments available. The first type is designed specifically for larger corporations capable of
CPU/CPU communication. Under this method, the payer bank wires funds directly to the Commission's
lockbox bank. As with cash payments, the funds must be wired from a U.S. financial institution. The second
type is designed for smaller businesses and individuals. Under this method, the lockbox bank is given
authority to withdraw funds from the customer's bank account. Authorization can be transmitted by a
personal computer or by calling a toll-free number. To obtain more information about electronic payment and
how it works, please contact the Revenue and Receivables Operations Group at (202) 418-1995. For further
information on making payment by electronic transfer see our website at
http://www.fcc.gov/fees/electran.html.

REMITTANCE ADVICE - FCC 159

The Remittance Advice, FCC 159, must accompany payment to the Federal Communications Commission for
Regulatory Fees, Application Processing Fees, Fines, Forfeitures, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)
billings or any other debt due to the FCC. The information on this form is collected and stored in a database
to ensure credit of full payment of monies due, to expedite any refunds due, and to service public inquiries.
Please refer to this guide for specific form requirements. Reproduced forms are acceptable. FCC 159C is a
remittance advice continuation sheet that must be used when paying for more than two call signs in a single
filing or when paying for multiple applicants in a single filing. Each call sign and/or applicant must be listed
separately on the FCC 159/FCC 159C.
- 3 -

Ways to obtain an FCC 159:
·
Go to http://www.fcc.gov/formpage.html.
·
Call the FCC’s Form Distribution Center at 1-800-418-FORM [3676].
·
Call the FCC’s Fax Information System by dialing (202) 418-0177, catalog ID #3000159.
·
Call the FCC at 1-877-480-3201 (TTY 717-338-2824).

DEBT COLLECTION IMPROVEMENT ACT

In accordance with the Debt Collection Improvement Act (DCIA), the Commission will withhold action
on applications and other requests for benefits upon discovery that the entity applying for or seeking
benefits is delinquent in its non-tax debts owed to the Commission, and dismiss such applications or
requests if the delinquent debt is not resolved. The Commission’s application fee rules have been
amended to state that if payment of the delinquent debt is not made or satisfactory arrangements for
payment are not made, we will withhold action on applications and other requests.

FEE EXEMPT APPLICATIONS

Please check the appropriate block on your application and provide the proper documentation, as required, to
certify that your application is fee exempt. 47 CFR, Part 1, § 1.1116 of the Commission's rules explains who
qualifies as fee exempt.

MANAGING DIRECTOR DECISIONS

Requests for waivers, fee determinations, reconsiderations, applications for review, deferments, and specific
refund requests are referred directly to the Office of the Managing Director. Each request is forwarded to the
Office of General Counsel for review and legal determination. 47 CFR, Part 1, §§ 1.1115 & 1.1119 govern
the Commission's policies in these instances. The requester will receive written notification of the Managing
Director's decision. These decisions are published monthly and are placed in FCC Docket 86-285. All such
requests must be submitted in writing to:
Managing Director
Federal Communications Commission
445 12th Street, SW, Room 1A625
Washington, DC 20554

WAIVER OF APPLICATION FEE, FEE DETERMINATIONS, AND DEFERRAL OF
APPLICATION FEE PROCESS

The required filing fee must be paid for the service requested using the normal process. All requests for
waiver of application fee and fee determinations are filed directly with the Managing Director in Washington,
DC. If the Commission grants the waiver request or the fee determination results in a lower fee, a refund will
be issued. Deferral of application fees are also filed in Washington, DC, and have a limit of up to six months
with good cause. Deferrals of fees are considered when the inability to pay the required fee is due to a
financial hardship (i.e., bankruptcy), and must be accompanied by supporting documentation.

REFUND PROCESS

The appropriate Bureau/Office handles routine refund requests. When a Bureau/Office determines that a
refund is warranted, it is forwarded to the Office of the Managing Director, Revenue and Receivables
Operations Group for processing. The Revenue and Receivables Operations Group (RROG) handles all
approved refund requests. Once the refund request is approved, the refund process usually takes 7-10
business days. Once a request has been reviewed and processed by RROG, it is forwarded to the U.S.
Treasury in San Francisco, California where a check is issued to the payer of the remittance. For further
information on return or refund of charges, refer to 47 CFR, Part 1, § 1.1115 of the Commission’s rules.

INFORMATION ABOUT REGULATORY FEES

The Federal Communications Commission, by Congressional mandate, implemented a regulatory fee schedule to recover costs incurred by the
Commission relative to policy and rulemaking actions, as well as its enforcement, user information and international activities.
The regulatory fees do not currently apply to Amateur Radio Services (except Vanity call signs), governmental entities, Commercial Radio Operator
Permits and Licenses, Non-commercial Educational Broadcast stations, Special Emergency & Public Safety Radio Services, modifications of existing
authorizations unless that modification results in a renewal or reinstatement for which a regulatory fee is required, and non-profit entities. Non-profit
entities must provide a current Determination Letter from the Internal Revenue Service when filing documentation for non-profit status under IRS
Code § 501 or current certification as a non-profit corporation or other non-profit entity by state or other governmental authority.
These regulatory fees will be assessed annually and will apply to those licensees and entities, which benefit from the Commission's regulatory
activities, other than licensing or application processing functions. Among the services affected by these fees are the Media Services and Commercial
Mobile Radio Services (CMRS). The regulatory fees for Media and Commercial Mobile Radio Services (CMRS) are paid on a predetermined date

UNIVERSAL LICENSING SYSTEM

ULS is an integrated database and automated processing system which will support electronic filing of applications and
other filings associated with applications (i.e. amendments, waiver requests, transfers and assignments of licenses, leases,
licensee ownership information, etc.), collection of licensing information and public access to such information. For
information on ULS electronic filing, visit the Internet @ http://wireless.fcc.gov/uls.
Upon submitting applications electronically via ULS, the applicant receives a confirmation of the fee(s) due (if any) for the
application and is instructed to either pay on-line credit card or print FCC 159 directly from ULS. If not paying online
immediately, the applicant may within 10 calendar days of the filing, utilize the

PAY FEES

option at
http://wireless.fcc.gov/uls. If electronic filing is not available to the applicant and is not required to file electronically, the
filing may be submitted manually along with FCC 159 and the appropriate fee and submitted to the appropriate address
provided in this guide.

The applicant must remit payment as described in this guide within 10 calendar days of
submitting the application, or the application will be dismissed.

Payment received more than ten (10) days after
electronic filing of an application on a Bureau/Office electronic filing system (e.g.,

ULS) will be forfeited (see
§§1.934 and 1.1111).

In order to avoid processing delays and dismissal due to insufficient fees, the Bureau recommends that applicants filing
feeable applications via ULS observe the following:
(1) Pay the amount specified by ULS (you may go back on-line within 10 days of receipt date to make your payment);
(2) Use the ULS-generated FCC 159;
(3) If paying by credit card, be sure to complete Section E of FCC 159;
(4) Submit fee payment in a timely manner (payment is due within 10 calendar days of submission);
(5) Submit only one instrument of payment (e.g., a check) for each FCC 159; and
(6) Mail or deliver FCC 159 and payment to the proper St. Louis, MO address.

For the most current information regarding the Universal Licensing System (ULS), go to the ULS home page at
http://wireless.fcc.gov/uls.

For the most current edition of any of the FCC forms necessary for manual filing, you may obtain the form at
http://www.fcc.gov/formpage.html, call the FCC at 1-877-480-3201 (TTY 717-338-2824), or by calling the FCC’s

Part 13 Restricted Radiotelephone

(Including Commercial Radio Operator)

RESTRICTED RADIOTELEPHONE OPERATOR PERMIT

WHO NEEDS AN RP?

At least one person holding an RP is required aboard stations in the maritime and aviation services when:
making international flights, voyages, or communications; 2) using frequencies under 30 MHz; 3) using a satellite ship earth station, or 4) operating a
vessel subject to the Bridge to Bridge Act (including domestic operation).

WHO DOESN’T NEED AN RP?

For mobile stations:

1) On board a voluntarily equipped ship using only VHF frequencies on domestic voyages OR using a radar, EPIRB, survival craft, or on-board
station; 2) on board an aircraft using only VHF frequencies on domestic voyages OR using radar, radio altimeter, transponder, or other automated
radionavigation transmitter; or 3) at a domestically operated marine utility station.

For fixed stations:
1)

at shore radar, shore radiolocation, maritime support, or shore radionavigation stations; 2) at a coast station or aeronautical ground station using
only VHF frequencies; or 3) at an aeronautical enroute station which automatically transmits digital communications to aircraft.
You no longer need an RP to operate a Broadcast station (e.g., AM, FM, TV). This requirement was eliminated on 12/1/95 (Report and Order, MM
Docket No. 94-130 released 10/23/95).
