(1) Costs taxable.
Except for a filing fee, no costs shall be taxed in proceedings in the Supreme Court and Court of Appeals unless depositions are taken in an original action as authorized by Rule 76.36(5), in which event the reporter's fees for taking and transcribing the depositions shall be charged to the unsuccessful party.
(2) Filing fees.
(a) Filing fees for docketing the following in the Court of Appeals or in the Supreme Court shall be:

Motion or cross-motion for discretionary review

(b) If prior to its perfection an appeal has been docketed for purposes of a motion for extension of time for certification of the record on appeal, for intermediate relief, or for dismissal of an adversary party's appeal, no further filing fee shall be required in order to perfect or make any other motion pertaining to that appeal during its pendency. No filing fee shall be payable in a criminal proceeding in which the appellant or appellants are represented by the Public Defender. No filing fee shall be payable by the Commonwealth, but in civil actions it shall be liable for reimbursement of costs as provided by paragraph (3) of this Rule to the same extent as any other unsuccessful party. Judicial officers of the Court of Justice who are litigants in their official capacities shall not be liable for reimbursement or for the payment of filing fees except as may be required by the Supreme Court in actions arising under Rule 4 (Judicial Retirement and Removal Commission).
(3) Collection.
Forthwith upon the final disposition of any action in an appellate court, the clerk shall send the parties a statement of what portion, if any, of the filing fee or fees mentioned in paragraph (2) of this Rule 76.42 shall be reimbursed by one party to the other, to the end that the costs of each appeal or original action shall be borne by the unsuccessful party or parties. Liability for reimbursement of costs may be enforced on motion without necessity of an independent proceeding.
