Petroleum Product Delivery Fee
HB 7, 84th Legislature, requires the TCEQ to adjust the petroleum product delivery fee rates to collect revenue in amounts not to exceed appropriations, less any amounts used for monitoring and remediation of releases occurring on or before Dec. 22, 1998. To meet the legislative requirement, the TCEQ is implementing a fee rate reduction of 37 percent. The agency published the new rates in the Aug. 28, 2015 publication of the Texas Register.
This fee is based on the capacity of the tank or vessel into which the petroleum product is delivered.
The new rates provided below are effective Sept. 1, 2015:
|Capacity of Receiving Tank||Fee|
|≥2,500 gallons, but <5,000 gallons||$3.45|
|≥5,000 gallons, but <8,000 gallons||$5.45|
|≥8,000 gallons, but <10,000 gallons||$6.95|
|≥10,000 gallons||$3.45 for each increment of 5,000 gallons|
If you have questions about whether you have been assessed the correct amount, please contact the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts, which collects the fee. Their phone numbers are 800-252-1383 or 512-463-4600.
