**ALERT**To avoid a potential loss of data, please ensure that you are continually working during your session as the system will not automatically save any data that is contained in the upload report but not yet submitted to USTIF. To avoid the issue, please consider uploading the information on a spreadsheet.
Distributors are required to report actual delivery data through the new fee billing system (FBS) in a specified format either manually or electronically. There are two methods of reporting:
- Manual reporting through the website; or
- Uploading data using the Throughput Upload Template
- Helpful Upload Instructions
For key information needed to complete the reporting document, refer to the tank registration placard.
Mailing of monthly reporting statements has been discontinued effective July 1, 2017. Payment invoices will be automatically generated upon successful upload of your monthly throughput report in FBS.
You may also find facility numbers using online search at http://www.depreportingservices.state.pa.us/ReportServer/Pages/ReportViewer.aspx?/TANKS/Tanks and search by zip code or county/municipality.
