As of July 1, 2015, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) will be transitioning from a transaction fee model to a convenience fee model for accepting credit card payments. Please note that NJDEP will continue to offer electronic check (eCheck/EFT) and Bill Me Later (available on some services) payment options completely free of any transaction charges.
Starting July 1, 2015, if you select Pay via Credit Card, you will be transferred to the new credit card processing web page. This page will display a line item for the NJDEP fee and a separate Service Fee line item representing the credit card convenience fee to be charged. Please be aware that your credit card statement will only contain one line item for the total amount being applied to your credit card. The credit card convenience fee will appear as a charge (but not a separate line item) on your credit card statement. For example, if the DEP fee is $50.00, the charge on your credit card will appear as $51.95 (convenience fee = $1.95). The convenience fee is 1.9% of the amount being charged + $1.00.
