USPTO Trademark Fees

The following are the trademark fees charged by the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Patent Fees are listed separately.

Note that most PTO fees are "per class" - that is, if the goods or services fall under more than one class in the International Classification of Goods and Services, then you must pay a separate fee for each class of goods. For example, if you are selling mugs (Glassware, Class 21) and t-shirts (Clothing, Class 25), you'd need to pay double the filing fees for a single class application. On the other hand, mugs, glasses and plates would fall into just class 21, so filing for these goods would only incur one filing fee. For a list of acceptable goods and services descriptions, with classes, see the "Trademark Identification Manual" on the USPTO website. 

For further information regarding fee amounts or to request a copy of the PTO fee schedule, please contact the USPTO's General Information Services Division by phone at (800) 786-9199 [PTO-9199] or (703) 308-4357 [308-HELP], or by fax at (703) 305-7786. A complete copy of the USPTO's fee schedule is also available from their website

Most trademark fees increased, effective January 14, 2017. Also, additional fees for filing on paper are imposed for most filings.

Note: these fees are correct as of January 9, 2017. As PTO fees are subject to change, be sure to check for the latest fees before filing anything.
