§ 245.42. Tank registration fees.

 (a)  Annual registration fees to be paid by owners of aboveground storage tanks are established under section 302 of the act (35 P. S. §  6021.302) as follows:

   (1)  $50 for each aboveground storage tank with a capacity less than or equal to 5,000 gallons.

   (2)  $125 for each aboveground storage tank with a capacity of more than 5,000 gallons and less than or equal to 50,000 gallons.

   (3)  $300 for each aboveground storage tank with a capacity of more than 50,000 gallons.

 (b)  Annual registration fees to be paid by owners of underground storage tanks are established under section 502 of the act (35 P. S. §  6021.502) as $50 for each underground storage tank.

 (c)  The Department will issue an invoice to the tank owner after receipt of a complete registration form under §  245.41(c) (relating to tank registration requirements). The tank owner shall remit the appropriate fee upon receipt of the invoice.

 (d)  Registration expiration dates are established for storage tanks according to facility location. The Department will prorate the registration fee in this section to reflect the percentage of time remaining in the registration year from the date of initial registration or change of ownership of a storage tank. The Department will not refund registration fees if an owner permanently closes a storage tank or exempts a storage tank through a change-in-service to store a nonregulated substance or change to nonregulated use (such as a process vessel) prior to the expiration of the storage tank’s registration. The Department will not refund registration fees due to a change of ownership.

 (e)  The Department will issue a certificate of registration to an owner upon payment of the required registration fee. The tank owner shall have the current valid certificate of registration available for inspection by the Department, certified storage tank inspector or installer and product distributor. At facilities where a regulated substance is sold at retail to the public, the certificate of registration or an exact copy shall be publicly displayed in a noticeable area at the facility.

 (f)  The Department will issue an annual invoice to the tank owner for the annual renewal of all regulated tanks at the owner’s facility once per year, at least 60 days prior to the expiration of the certificate of registration.

 (g)  Fees are payable no later than 60 days after the invoice date, and will be considered delinquent 90 days after the invoice date.
