USPTO Patent Fees Increase 2.8% on September 30, 2007 to Match Cost of Living Index

On August 22, 2007, the USPTO announced Revision of Patent Fees for Fiscal Year 2007 , where, "Based on the revised projected [Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers] CPI–U, patent statutory fee amounts will be adjusted by 2.8 percent in this final rule." The new fees become effective September 30, 2007.

The fee amounts were rounded by applying standard arithmetic rules so that the amounts rounded will be convenient to the user. Fee rates for other than a small entity of $100 or more were rounded to the nearest $10. Fee rates of less than $100 were rounded to an even number so that any comparable small entity fee amount will be a whole number.

So, for example, the basic filing fee for a large entity will go from $300.00 to $310.00.
