USPTO – Fees and payments

Fees and Payments

The fees subject to reduction upon establishment of small entity status (37 CFR 1.27) or micro entity status (37 CFR 1.29) are shown in separate columns. Payments from foreign countries must be payable and immediately negotiable in the United States for the full amount of the fee required. For additional information, please call the USPTO Contact Center at (571) 272-1000 or (800) 786-9199.
The $400/$200 non-electronic filing fee (fee codes 1090/2090 or 1690/2690) must be paid in addition to the filing, search and examination fees, in each original nonprovisional utility application filed in paper with the USPTO. The only way to avoid payment of the non-electronic filing fee is by filing your nonprovisional utility application via EFS-Web. The non-electronic filing fee does not apply to reissue, design, plant, or provisional applications.
