OSMRE Fee Collection Authority


OSMRE’s Title IV AML reclamation fee collection authority expired on September 30, 2021. Pursuant to SMCRA and its implementing regulations, coal operators must pay reclamation fees based on calendar quarter tonnage no later than 30 days after the end of each calendar quarter. The third calendar quarter ends on September 30, 2021. Reclamation fees due for the third quarter must be paid no later than October 30, 2021.

The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act would amend SMCRA to extend OSMRE’s fee collection authority until September 30, 2034 and change the reclamation fee rates. OSMRE continues to monitor the status and will provide updates as appropriate.
