We have attempted to make the trademark forms easy to understand and each form is accompanied with detailed instructions. The filing fee for a new trademark registration, a renewal or an assignment is $125.00. All applications must be fully completed and include a filing fee, or they will be returned to the applicant. A trademark/service mark registration is good for 4 years and can be renewed up to 6 months prior to the expiration date.

The trademark office can be reached through email at or via phone at (605)773-2797.
