Licensees and regulatees who are required to pay annual regulatory fees pursuant to 47 U.S.C. 159 (Public Law 103-66) must make their Fiscal Year (FY 2005) fee payments by 11:59 p.m. on September 7, 2005. The official fee payment window will open on August 23, 2005, but payments may be sent prior to August 23. Payments received after 11:59 p.m. on September 7, 2005 will be assessed a 25% late payment penalty. The Commission is required by Congress to collect regulatory fees to recover the regulatory costs associated with its enforcement, policy, rulemaking, user information, and international activities.

Licensees and regulatees pay differing fees dependent on a variety of factors, such as the number of subscribers, number of assigned telephone numbers, or revenue, etc. For more information on how the FY 2005 regulatory fees were determined or instructions on how to make payment go to​fees.
