Filing fees depend on how many international classes the applicant’s products or services fall in, and how the application is filed with the US Patent & Trademark Office. For more information about international classes, see our guide "What Is an International Class In a Trademark Application?"

TEAS Plus is a great choice for many applicants that sell only products or services that are easily describe in the Trademark ID Manual, since it saves $50. Applicants that sell more complicated or difficult-to-describe products or services may be better served by TEAS RF. If you still own and use a VCR, traditional TEAS is probably for you.
Internationally, filing fees can vary widely from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. If you factor in local counsel’s fees plus official filing fees, costs can often exceed $1,500 for the first class in an application.
