If you filed a Toxics Use Reduction (TUR) report in 2015 for chemical use during 2014, there is a TUR fee due to the MassDEP by September 1.
Companies subject to TURA are required to pay annual toxics use fees. These are based on a formula that takes into account the number of people the company employs and the number of listed chemicals it manufactures, processes or otherwise uses in excess of applicable thresholds. A company calculates its fee using a worksheet/invoice that the facility submits along with its annual TUR report.
This worksheet/invoice serves as the company’s first notice of payment due. The fee must be paid in full by September 1 of the filing year. (http://www.mass.gov/eea/agencies/massdep/toxics/tur/about-tura-reporting-and-fees.html#ToxicsUseFees )
The last sheet of your facility’s TUR reporting package includes the fee calculation worksheet and serves as the invoice for the fee. No additional notice is sent by MassDEP regarding this fee.
Print the Worksheet/Invoice page as documentation and send a copy with your check to:
MassDEP, PO Box 4062, Boston MA 02211
Payment is due by September 1, 2015. If your payment is not received by September 1, a second invoice including the $1000 late fee mandated by MGL 21I will be sent to the facility.
If you need assistance determining or submitting your TUR invoice, please contact your project manager at CAPACCIO, or Jill Vernes at firstname.lastname@example.org.
