(c) The annual registration fee may be divided into quarterly payments and billed on dates established by the executive director. Payment in full is due within 30 days of the agency invoice date. The fees must be paid by check, certified check, money order, or electronic funds transfer made payable to the "Texas Commission on Environmental Quality." (d) The registration certificate will not be issued until registration fees, penalties, and interest assessed are paid in full. (e) Owners that fail to pay registration fees when due shall pay penalties and interest in accordance with Chapter 12 of this title (relating to Payment of Fees).
