New application fee schedule still set to take effect April 28, 2009.

For those procrastinating on filing applications with the Commission, now is the time to act if you want to save a few bucks.

As we reported on March 26, the Commission’s new broadcast application fee schedule will go into effect on April 28. (Application fee schedules for other services also kick in next Tuesday, April 28. You can find a collection of 2009 Fee Filing Guides for all services here.) The current fees have been in effect far longer than the Commission originally contemplated, as faithful readers of the first five or six installments of our “Pursestrings Update” series know.  But the fun ends on Monday night: all the new fee schedules will become effective at 12:01 a.m. on Tuesday morning.

Please let us know if we can help you pull together any last-minute filings to beat the deadline.
