Effective July 1, 2012: Changes to the Petroleum Products Delivery Fee
House Bill 2694, passed during the 82nd Legislature Regular Session (2011), reauthorized and made permanent the fee on the delivery of certain petroleum products that was set to expire Aug. 31, 2011. The law requires the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality by rule to set the amount of the petroleum product delivery fee rates. The fee applies to all petroleum products imported into Texas or withdrawn from a Texas bulk storage facility and delivered into cargo tanks or barges. The fee set by the commission is based upon total gallons delivered, as shown in this schedule, beginning July 1, 2012:
|Less than 2,500||
|2,500 but less than 5,000||
|5,000 but less than 8,000||
|8,000 but less than 10,000||
|10,000 or more, per 5,000 or increment thereof||
