USPTO Reduces Electronic Trademark Filing Fees

Beginning on January 17, 2015 the fee for electronically filing a trademark application will drop $50 to $225 for an application with confirms to an existing classification (TEAS Plus) and $275 for all other applications. The USPTO just issued a Final Rule notice reducing certain trademark filing fees. The USPTO also will reduce the fee to renew a trademark registration by $100 to $300 per class, if filed electronically. In an effort to promote the efficiencies of electronic filing, the reduced fees are only available if the applicant files the application electronically and agrees to receive communications by email and files all applications, responses and other documents through TEAS.
