The "Section 31 Fee" applies to certain sell transactions, assessed at a rate consistent with Section 31 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. TD Ameritrade remits these fees to certain self-regulatory organizations and national securities exchanges, which in turn make payment to the SEC. These fees are intended to cover the costs incurred by the government, including the SEC, for supervising and regulating the securities markets and securities professionals. The rate is subject to annual and mid-year adjustments which may not be immediately known to TD Ameritrade; as a result, the fee assessed may differ from or exceed the actual amount of the fee applicable to your transaction. Any excess may be retained by TD Ameritrade. Fees are rounded to the nearest penny.
The Options Regulatory Fee varies by options exchange, where an options trade executes, and whether the broker responsible for the trade is a member of a particular exchange. As a result, TD Ameritrade calculates a blended rate that equals or slightly exceeds the amount it is required to remit to the options exchanges.
The Trading Activity Fee will be assessed at a rate consistent with Section 1 of Schedule A of FINRA’s By-Laws for trading activity.

Fees are rounded to the nearest penny.
