The Annual FCC Regulatory Fees Payment is due, date still TBD. The payment date of annual FCC regulatory fees is usually determined during the summer. In recent years, the deadline has been announced at the end of August. However, the deadline for payment is typically set for a date in mid to late September, as the fees must be paid before the government’s new fiscal year starts on October 1. All Commercial Full-Power and Class A Television Stations, TV Translators, TV Boosters, and Commercial AM and FM Radio Stations, FM Translators, and FM Boosters must pay the FCC.
