Emission Sources

Title V Annual Emissions Fee On-line Information Center

As of 2013, annual emissions fees collected by the Department from major sources of air pollution (Title V sources) are based on the actual amount of regulated air pollutants emitted. The annual emissions fees are automatically calculated based on the emissions reported on the electronic Annual Operating Report (EAOR) and are due by April 1, 2016. For correct fee calculation, it is important to check each regulated pollutant is correctly marked in EAOR prior to completing the EAOR.

Resources to help you complete your Annual Operating Report (AOR), including the most recent version of EAOR software required to complete the AOR, are available on the EAOR web page.

IMPORTANT NOTICE:  If you are having trouble submitting your report from EAOR, please visit the software download page to find out how to fix it.

If you have questions or need assistance after reviewing the information posted on the EAOR web page, please contact us by phone at (850) 717-9000 or email at eaor@dep.state.fl.us.

The list includes payments posted through approximately April 12, 2016. Though payments received are posted as timely as possible, processing takes several days. An updated list will be posted to this website on a daily basis. Although the list is provided, please keep in mind EAORs are normally reviewed by FDEP between April – June, and as a result, adjustments in fees owed may occur during this time.

EAOR Calculation of Title V Annual Emissions Fees

The Title V Annual Emissions Fees are automatically calculated by the EAOR software based on the actual emissions reported for each pollutant regulated at the Title V facility. Regulated pollutants have a numerical emissions limit or emissions cap in the permit and will be marked in EAOR, a marked pollutant will have an asterisk (for example *PM). It is important to check each regulated pollutant is correctly marked in EAOR prior to completing the EAOR. If pollutants are not correctly marked, then please contact us as soon as possible before proceeding with your AOR by phone at (850) 717-9000 or email at eaor@dep.state.fl.us.

After completing the EAOR entries and submitting the report, an invoice is generated for your facility which can be printed and shows which emissions are subject to the fee and the total Title V Annual Emissions Fee that is due.


Technical or Financial Hardship

Because the Title V Annual Emissions Fees are automatically calculated by the EAOR software, each Title V source must submit the AOR using the DEP's EAOR software, unless the Title V source claims a technical or financial hardship. In this case, the source claiming a hardship must submit DEP Form No. 62-210.900(5) and the appropriate Title V Annual Emissions Fee to the DEP by mail, instead of using the reporting software.

Title V Fee Factor; Additional fees

The applicable fee factor is set at $30/ton of pollutant(s) emitted and is used in EAOR to automatically generate the total fee due for the calendar year emissions. Please note that if the calculated fee payment is not postmarked or electronically submitted by April 1st, the Department shall impose, in addition to the fee, a penalty of 50 percent of the amount of the unpaid fee, plus interest on such amount.

The interest rate for fees that are due but not paid by April 1, 2016, as established pursuant to Section 55.03, Florida Statutes, has been set at 4.75% per annum (0.396% per month). This interest rate is subject to change on a quarterly basis, so if you are making a payment after April 1st, please refer to Florida's Chief Financial Officer's web page.
