Annual and Permanent Tank Management Tags - Each regulated underground storage tank (UST) is issued a permanent tag that identifies that tank in the UST database and remains attached to the fill port for the life of the tank. An annual tag also is issued each year unless the tank has a capacity of 1100 gallons or less. Tank tags are extremely important in identifying fill ports and confirming that a site was in compliance when the annual tag was issued. Do not remove permanent tags; they must be affixed to the tank’s fill port until it is permanently closed.

Transport drivers may not transfer product to tanks that are not identified with both a permanent and annual tag. If permanent and current annual tags are not present on a fill port, deliveries are prohibited to that tank. Tank tags also identify a fill port from a monitoring well. Otherwise, there could be a lot more deliveries to monitoring wells than have already occurred.

Annual tank management tags are issued for the period of April 1 through March 31 of each year. Initial tank management tags are issued upon completion of installation requirements. Tank management fees are $65.00 per tank or compartment and $10 for registration. These fees are received by the Department of Natural Resources (DNR).
