  §  61.17   Method of filing applications for special permission.

   (a) An application for special permission filed electronically must be
   addressed to "Secretary, Federal Communications Commission, Washington,
   DC 20554." The Electronic Tariff Filing System will accept filings 24
   hours a day, seven days a week. The official filing date of a
   publication received by the Electronic Tariff Filing System will be
   determined by the date and time the transmission ends. If the
   transmission ends after the close of a business day, as that term is
   defined in § 1.4(e)(2) of this chapter, the filing will be date and
   time stamped as of the opening of the next business day.

   (b) In addition, except for issuing carriers filing tariffing fees
   electronically, for special permission applications requiring fees as
   set forth in part 1, subpart G of this chapter, issuing carriers must
   submit the original of the application letter (without attachments),
   FCC Form 159, and the appropriate fee to the U.S. Bank, St. Louis,
   Missouri, at the address set forth in § 1.1105 of this chapter. Issuing
   carriers submitting tariffing fees electronically should submit a copy
   of the Form 159 and the original application letter to the Secretary of
   the Commission in lieu of the U.S. Bank. The Form 159 should display
   the Electronic Audit Code in the box in the upper left hand corner
   marked "reserved". Issuing carriers should submit these fee materials
   on the same day as the transmission in paragraph (a) of this section.

   (c) In addition, if a carrier applies for special permission to revise
   joint tariffs, the application must state that it is filed on behalf of
   all carriers participating in the affected service. Applications must
   be numbered consecutively in a series separate from FCC tariff numbers,
   bear the signature of the officer or agent of the carrier, and be in
   the following format:
