Fees are assessed based on specified fee categories for installation permits and reported emissions for fees funding the various operating permit programs. From time to time, you may question whether a fee has been assessed correctly. You should first contact the Ohio EPA District Office or Local Air Agency (DO/LAA) that has primary jurisdiction for your facility to discuss if the fee was accurately assessed.
Please be prepared to provide the following information:
The type of fee (Installation permit, NonTitle V operating, Synthetic Minor operating or Title V operating)
The Ohio EPA Revenue ID number
The 10-digit Ohio EPA facility ID (premise number)
The Permit Number and issue date (if the inquiry is in regard to an Installation permit fee)
Your question or basis for requesting an adjustment to the fee
The DO/LAA contact will submit a request to the Division of Air Pollution Control (DAPC) Central Office if you come to the conclusion that the fee must be adjusted. DAPC Central Office will make the adjustment in the Agency accounting system to reflect the agreed upon revised fee amount. You should submit payment, if there is an outstanding balance based on the revised fee amount, to:
Dept. L-2711, Columbus, OH 43260-2711
DAPC Central Office staff will process a refund based on the DO/LAA recommendation if it is determined that overpayment has been made.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Please be sure to include the tearoff portion of the original invoice (you may strike the original amount due and write in the revised amount) or include the revenue ID number on the check/correspondence that accompanies your payment.
