Producer Information

Producers are required to annually submit payment of the Impact Fee to the Commission on or before April 1. Per Act 13, producers are required to pay only the amount as calculated by the annual report filed by the producer. As such, each producer self-reports its financial liability under Act 13/Impact Fee.

Act 13/Impact Fee Producer Annual Report - Pursuant to Act 13/Impact Fee, each producer is required to annually file a list of wells on this report with the Commission. This is done online through a secure login. Any disputes regarding classification should be identified in this report. The Impact Fee that a producer pays to the Commission is based on this report that the producer files with the Commission. Instructions are included in the report.
