FCC Regulatory Fees Due September 24th

Just a reminder, the FCC’s regulatory fees will be due by 11:59 p.m. EDT on September 24, 2019.  You must file via the FCC’s Fee Filer system, which is available for use now.  You may pay online via credit card or debit card, or submit payment via Automated Clearing House (ACH) or wire transfer.  Remember that $24,999.99 is the daily maximum that can be charged to a credit card in the Fee Filer system.  As a result, many stations may have to pay their fees using the other methods.

NYSBA, along with other state broadcast associations were able to convince the FCC that its methodology for calculating radio fees was incorrect.  As a result, you will see about a 10% adjustment in the radio fees depending on the class of radio stations.
