Fee Filer Mandatory For FY 2010 Regulatory Fees

Download Options

Released: October 13, 2010

Although Fee Filer is a self-reporting tool, the Fee Filer program is able to populate the various fee
categories using a particular or associated FRN. However, regardless of the data populated in Fee
Filer, the filer is still responsible for reporting and paying for all regulatory fees owed, irrespective
of whether all of these fees are identified using this feature. All 2010 regulatory fees should be paid
through the Regulatory Fees section of Fee Filer, regardless of whether a bill for the fees was issued
by the FCC.

Due Date for Paying Regulatory Fees is August 31, 2010

Please note that FY 2010 regulatory fees are due by August 31, 2010. Payments received after
11:59 p.m. ET on August 31, 2010 will be assessed a 25% late payment fee.

Updated Features for Easier Filing

In 2010, Fee Filer remains basically the same as in 2009 but with a few new enhancements.

Commercial Mobile Radio Services (CMRS) filers can now use Fee Filer to update their
subscriber counts for the upcoming fiscal year.

Filers who submit their Interstate Telephone Service Provider (ITSP) fees using Fee Filer
can now retrieve their submitted ITSP data via a link to the associated Form 159-W.

In addition, when users choose to provide their e-mail address on the Fee Filer Final Review
page, they will receive an e-mail confirmation when the FCC processes their payment.

For Further Assistance

The Financial Operations Help Desk (1-877-480-3201, option 4) can provide assistance with Fee
Filer and is staffed from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. ET on business days. You can also e-mail your
questions to:
