    • All Tier II facilities are required to pay a reporting fee, except federal facilities.
    • ePay is the TCEQ's online payment application.
    • Fees will be billed when submitting Annual or Initial Tier II Reports.

* State agencies and public colleges may request an invoice for an interagency transfer voucher (ITV) from the Tier II Program.

How much do I pay?

Fees are determined by your North American Industrial Classification System code and categorized into two categories of facilities. They are then based on the number of chemicals per facility.

Fees are calculated and billed automatically by the Tier II Online Reporting Program, but you can use the following fee calculators to determine your hypothetical balance.

A fee will be calculated and assessed each time an Annual or Initial report is submitted. Make sure that your facility and chemical information is complete prior to submission as a submitted report cannot be recalled and any changes will need to be made in a new report.

Calculate your fees by the type of facility you operate:

* Does your NAICS code begin with a 31, 32, or 33? If so, you are a manufacturer.
