The attached form is designed to meet minimal statutory filing requirements pursuant to the
relevant code provisions. The form and the information provided are not substitutes for the advice and
services of an attorney.
General Information
Texas trademark registrations last for five years and may be renewed for additional five year periods
using this form. A registration may be renewed during the six months immediately preceding the

term expires, a new application for registration must be made.
A renewal must include the goods and/or services recited in the current registration on or in connection
with which the mark is still in use in Texas. If the renewal application covers less than all the goods
and/or services in the current registration, a list of the particular goods and/or services to be renewed
must be included.
If either the mark or the classification of the goods or services has substantially changed from the
previous registration, a new registration for the altered mark or new classification must be made.
If the renewal application is refused, the application may be amended in response to the refusal, but a
