- Just an FYI regarding manual FCC filings and payments.

 

Some have utilized the FCC form to renew their license or make FCC payments in the past by mail.  Within the next 90 days, the FCC will be closing the PO Box used for those filings.  They will no longer accept any mailed in manual filings or payments. All payments and filings will be required to be done electronically.

 

Payments will be accepted by credit card or debit from a bank account. 

More information can be found in the Federal Register at
