FCC ANNOUNCES REVISED FY 2011 APPLICATION
Effective June 21, 2011,
the application fees charged to licensees and permittees by the Federal
Communications Commission (FCC) will increase to reflect the change in the Consumer Price
Section 8(b) of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended in the Omnibus Budget
Reconciliation Act of 1989, requires cost-of-living adjustments to the application fee schedule
every two years after October 1, 1991. Increases in the dollar amount of all Section 8 application
fees are based on the percentage change in the CPI-U from the date of enactment of the
legislation. The new Schedule of Application Fees reflects the net change in the CPI-U of 7.24
index points or 3.5 percent, calculated from October 2007 through October 2009 in accordance
with Section 1.1115 of Part 1 of the Commission's Rules.1 All revenues generated by Section 8
Application Fees are deposited in the General Fund of the United States Treasury.
Wireless Telecommunications Services application fees that have an associated regulatory fee
that must be paid at the time of application filing are noted by an asterisk in the Schedule. Please
refer to the most recent Wireless Telecommunications Bureau Fee Filing Guide for the total fee
that is due for these specific services.
Copies of all fee filing guides for each of the Bureaus/Offices that have feeable services may be
obtained on the Internet at www.fcc.gov/fees/appfees.html
. For additional information
concerning the new Schedule of Section 8 Application Fees, please contact the CORES Helpdesk
at 1-877-480-3201 (Option 4).
1 The actual calculation in fees is based on index points that are averaged over time beginning in December 1989.
