If you can wait three weeks to file that new trademark application, you can save some money. Effective Saturday, January 17, 2015, the U.S. trademark office is reducing some of its fees.
The fee for a new electronic trademark application filed on and after January 17, 2015 is reduced $50, provided that the applicant agrees to e-mail communication and agrees to file documents electronically during the prosecution period.
So, a TEAS fee will reduce from $325 to $275 per class, and a TEAS Plus fee will reduce from $275 to $225 per class. There is no reduction in the fee for a new paper application. This remains at $375 per class.
The registration renewal fee will also reduce by $100 for electronic renewals through TEAS, from $400 per class to $300 per class.
More information about the reduced fees is available in the Federal Register notice.
