New Voluntary Registry for Petroleum Sites

If a person or a company owns an interest in a petroleum site, this program is designed to help them monitor the status of that petroleum site. This will allow a registrant to receive copies of correspondence sent to the tank owner concerning operational compliance, fund eligibility, fee payment and other subjects related to the petroleum underground storage tanks or tank releases at the petroleum site.

Annual UST Fees

The UST Law requires payment of an annual tank fee for all tanks which are in use or temporarily out of service even one day during the annual billing cycle. This applies to tanks taken out of service on or after July 1, 1988, and not permanently closed in accordance with the regulations. The UST Regulations do not allow the annual fee to be prorated even if the tank was in service only part of the annual fee year. The annual billing cycle or fee year starts July 1 for USTs in East Tennessee, October 1 for USTs in Middle Tennessee and January 1 for USTs in West Tennessee. The rules list which counties are located in East, Middle and West Tennessee.
