RULE 605 - TITLE V PERMIT SUPPLEMENTARY FEES
(Adopted: May 11, 1994)
The fees collected pursuant to this section shall supplement the fee requirements in Rule 603. The terms shown in italics in this rule are defined in Rule 522, Part 2.0.
A. Payment of Supplemental Fee
An owner or operator, or his or her delegee, shall pay an annual supplemental fee for a permit to operate pursuant to this rule as determined by the calculation method in subsection C. below to meet an overall fee rate of $25 per ton of fee-based emissions (CPI adjusted), unless subsection B. below applies.
B. No Supplemental Fee
There shall not be a supplemental annual fee if the total annual fee rate paid by the source under Rule 603 and H&SC section 44380 (AB 2588 Toxic Hot Spots) equals or exceeds $25 per ton of fee-based emissions (CPI adjusted). Only those AB 2588 Toxic Hot Spots fees that fund direct and indirect costs associated with activities related to the operating permits program as specified in section 502(b)(3)(A) of the CAA are to be used to meet the overall fee rate of $25 per ton of fee-based emissions (CPI adjusted).
C. Determination of Supplemental Fee
The supplemental annual fee shall be determined by completing the following steps:
|Step 1:||Calculation of Supplemental Annual Fee
s = [ $25 per ton (CPI adjusted) x e ] - f
|Step 2:||When the Supplemental Annual Fee is Zero
If "f" is equal to or greater than "[$25 per ton (CPI adjusted) x e]," then "s" shall be zero and subsection B., above, applies.
If "f" is less than "[ $25 per ton (CPI adjusted) x e ]," then "s" shall be as calculated in Step 1.
D. Submittal of Information
An owner or operator of a source, or his or her delegee, shall provide the APCO sufficient information to determine the supplemental fee.
