Effective January 17, 2015, the USPTO is reducing application and renewal fees for trademark applications filed via the Internet.
- Application fees will be reduced from $325 US to $275 US, per international class, for a standard trademark application.
- Application fees will be reduced from $275 US to $225 US, per international class, for a "TEAS PLUS" trademark application which includes restrictions on how the associated goods and services may be identified.

To qualify for these fees, the applicant (or their agent) must agree to file the application via the Internet and agree to accept electronic correspondance (email) from the USPTO.
