USPTO Fees Update

Effective October 2, 2020, many USPTO fees will increase including application filing, RCE, appeal and issue fees. Therefore, to save costs, with one exception, you may consider filing any items with fee increases prior to October 2, 2020.

The exception relates to the payment of the Issue Fee.  Any issue Fee having a mailing date prior to October 2, 2020, will have the lower Issue Fee printed on the Notice of Allowance (even if the Issue Fee is paid after October 2, 2020). 

A full list of the fees is attached and can be viewed using the USPTO link found here.
