Washington - Jul 20, 2012 - In a report and order, the Federal Communications Commission set its regulatory fees for its 2012 fiscal year to raise $339,844,000. The FCC is currently reviewing its process and methods to assess and collect regulatory fees in the future. The fees will be collected in September 2012.

The FCC determines the fees a station owes based on the station's power level and type of service, and the population served. The 2012 fees will use the 2010 Census data, which may affect the amount owed by some stations. Broadcast Auxiliary Services are also subject to regulatory fees.

Information on how stations can pay the fees is posted on the FCC website at transition.fcc.gov/fees/regfees.html.

Radio station fees are on page 19, in Attachment C of the FCC's rulemaking, which can be accessed here: hraunfoss.fcc.gov/edocs_public/attachmatch/FCC-12-76A1.pdf.
