  §  1.1158   Form of payment for regulatory fees.

   Any annual and multiple year regulatory fee payment must be submitted
   by online Automatic Clearing House (ACH) payment, online Visa,
   MasterCard, American Express, or Discover credit card payment, or wire
   transfer payment denominated in U.S. dollars and drawn on a United
   States financial institution and made payable to the Federal
   Communications Commission. No other credit card is acceptable. Any
   other form of payment for annual and multiple year regulatory fees
   (e.g., paper checks, cash) will be rejected and sent back to the payor.
   The Commission will not be responsible for cash, under any
   circumstances, sent through the mail.

   (a) Payors making wire transfer payments must submit an accompanying
   FCC Form 159-E via facsimile.

   (b) Multiple payment instruments for a single regulatory fee are not
   permitted, except that the Commission will accept multiple money orders
   in payment of any fee where the fee exceeds the maximum amount for a
   money order established by the issuing entity and the use of multiple
   money orders is the only practicable means available for payment.

   (c) Payment of multiple standard regulatory fees (including an
   installment payment) due on the same date, may be made with a single
   payment instrument and cover mass media, common carrier, international,
   and cable service fee payments. Each regulatee is solely responsible
   for accurately accounting for and listing each license or authorization
   and the number of subscribers, access lines, or other relevant units on
   the accompanying FCC Form 159 and, if needed, FCC Form 159C and for
   making full payment for every regulatory fee listed on the accompanying
   form. Any omission or payment deficiency of a regulatory fee will
   result in a 25 percent penalty of the amount due and unpaid.

   (d) Any regulatory fee payment (including a regulatory fee payment
   submitted with an application in the wireless radio service) made by
   credit card or money order must be submitted with a completed FCC Form
   159. Failure to accurately enter the credit card number and date of
   expiration and the payor's signature in the appropriate blocks on FCC
   Form 159 will result in rejection of the credit card payment.

    80 FR 66816 , Oct. 30, 2015]
