|(a) Fees shall be remitted with each application for a use determination as required in paragraphs (1) - (3) of this subsection. (1) Tier I Application--A $150 fee shall be charged for applications for property that is located in the Tier I Table located in §17.14(a) of this title (relating to Tier I Pollution Control Property), as long as the application seeks no variance from that use determination. (2) Tier II Application--A $1,000 fee shall be charged for applications for property that is used wholly for the control of air, water, and/or land pollution, but not in the Tier I Table located in §17.14(a) of this title. (3) Tier III Application--A $2,500 fee shall be charged for applications for property used partially for the control of air, water, and/or land pollution. (b) Fees will be forfeited for applications for use determination on which the executive director will take no further action under §17.12(2) of this title (relating to Application Review Schedule). An applicant who submits an insufficient fee will receive a deficiency notice in accordance with the procedures in §17.12(2) of this title. The fee must be remitted with the response to the deficiency notice before the application will be deemed administratively complete. If it is determined during a technical review that an application was submitted at the wrong tier level, the executive director will notify the applicant of the amount in which the fees are deficient or in excess, and if there are deficient fees, the applicant shall remit the deficient amount of fees before review of the application continues. If the deficient fees are not paid in full within 30 days of the applicant being notified of the deficiency, the executive director will take no further action on the application. If the executive director takes no further action on the application, the portion of the fees already paid shall be forfeited by the applicant. (c) All fees shall either be remitted in the form of a check or money order made payable to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ), by electronic funds transfer, or by using the commission's ePay system. (d) The check, money order, or electronic funds transfer receipt must be delivered with the application to the commission, at the address listed on the application form.
