Tank Fees

The Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality assesses a $100 per year tank fee on every underground storage tank that is regulated by the underground storage tank regulations. Every underground storage tank owner is sent a “tank bill” each year during the last week of May. The tank fee is due July 1st of each year. All checks for payment of tank fees should be made payable to “MDEQ”. Failure to pay the bill by the deadline could result in a 50 % penalty added to the balance of the bill. Enclosed with the invoice for payment is an inventory sheet of all of the facilities and tanks located at each facility. A new owner assumes the responsibility of any unpaid tank fees from the previous tank owner. The monies collected from tank fees are used to operate the underground storage tank program.
