Applicants will be invoiced based on the fee schedule in place on the date DMS receives a complete permit package (404/401/CAMA, as applicable) from an applicant or applicant’s agent or the date of the most recent acceptance letter; whichever is later. Invoices issued by DMS are valid for 60 days. If an invoice is not paid within 60 days of the date the invoice is issued, subsequent invoices will reflect the fee schedule in place on the date DMS issues a new invoice.
Invoice extensions may be requested by contacting the In-Lieu Fee Program Coordinator. Payments based on expired invoices will not be accepted. Permits may require payment prior to the expiration date printed on an invoice. It is the permittee's responsibility to consult with permitting agencies to extend their payment period. Permitting agencies generally require that payment is made prior to impacts to streams, wetlands or buffers.
