(4)DEQ will issue an invoice to each permittee for the annual compliance fees due for each UST facility for each calendar year. The permittee must pay fees by the due date listed on the invoice. DEQ will assess a $35 late fee for each invoice that is not paid by the due date. At its discretion, DEQ may allow the permittee to make alternative arrangements for payment.
(5)For any UST that was not permitted by May 1, 1988, or that was not permitted before installation during any year thereafter, the owner and permittee must pay the annual compliance fee for each calendar year or part of a calendar year since installation, except that the total amount of fees owed will not be more than $500 per tank. These fees must be paid before DEQ will approve a 30-day or 3-day notice to decommission the UST.
(6)All checks or money orders for fees must be made payable to DEQ.
