TEAS - Version 5.10: 07/15/2017
The USPTO is currently experiencing technical issues affecting the fee payment system. At this time the fee payment system is unavailable and cannot collect any payments. If you have a filing due today and the document cannot be filed via TEAS or TEASi, you must use an
of filing to ensure that the document is timely received by the USPTO.
The USPTO will perform system maintenance on TEAS and TEASi beginning at 8:00 a.m. and ending at 12:01 p.m., Saturday, May 5 ET. During the maintenance period, TEAS and TEASi will be unavailable. You should file all saved forms and e-signature forms by 7:59 a.m. ET on Saturday, May 5. If you don't file these forms by that time, you will have to start the process again with the new forms. We apologize for any inconvenience.
You may file an Allegation of Use ONLY
the application to register the mark has been approved for publication OR
a Notice of Allowance for the application has been issued.
To delete a Section 1(b) filing basis entirely from an application, or as a basis for an entire class, you must use the specific
Request To Delete Section 1(B) Basis, Intent To Use
Unlike with an Amendment to Allege Use filed before an application has been approved for publication, you may not withdraw a Statement of Use (SOU) filed after a Notice of Allowance has been issued if the SOU fails to meet the statutory requirements. However, you may file one "insurance" extension request with the SOU, or afterwards, in the limited situation where time remains in the existing six-month period in which the SOU was filed. This would give you additional time to comply with the statutory requirements for filing the SOU.
You must complete any field preceded by the symbol "
This form has a session time limit of 60 minutes. Your "session" began as soon as you accessed this initial Form Wizard page. If you exceed the 60-minute time limit, the form will not validate and you must begin the entire process again; you can, however,
extend the time limit
. You should always try to have all information required to complete the form prior to starting any session.
