Starting today, you can use cost allocation tags to manage your costs in Amazon Simple Queue Service (SQS). You can now use tags to categorize your queues, so you can easily identify their purpose and track their costs. For example, you can use tags to identify all the Amazon SQS queues for a particular department, project, or application. Once you have tagged your Amazon SQS queues, you can sign up to include usage and cost details for particular tags in your Amazon Web Services account bill. 

You can add or remove tags using the Amazon SQS management console, Amazon Command Line Interface, or API. You can assign up to 50 tags, each consisting of a key and a value, per Amazon SQS queue.

Cost allocation tagging is now available in Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region operated by Sinnet. For more information on using tagging with Amazon SQS, see Tagging your Amazon SQS Queues.
