This just in: the FCC has extended the deadline for the 2011 regulatory fees! If you haven’t paid yet, no problem: you now have until 11:59 p.m. ET on September 16, 2011, to get the cash into the Commission’s hands. The terse public announcement of the extension provides no insight into why the deadline is getting pushed back two days – but who cares? If you didn’t get your fees in by the original deadline (i.e., September 14), you can still avoid that pesky 25% late charge if you just can scrape together enough to cover what you owe the Feds by the extended deadline. Good luck.
