Hillsborough County has an agreement with the Tax Collector’s office to assess a hazardous waste surcharge on a Business Tax.   The fee is assessed to occupational codes identified as potential generators,  so not all businesses in Hillsborough County are assessed the surcharge.  The hazardous waste fee is currently set at $40.00.

How many counties utilize the $50 dollars or less as a surcharge renewal for businesses or occupational licenses according to statutes?  I need feedback!!!

Public Health – Environmental Control
According to Statutes  403.7225 for Local hazardous waste management assessments.  Under 403.7236

(12) The Legislature recognizes the expense incurred by county governments in the proper identification, notification, and verification of small quantity generators of hazardous waste within their jurisdictions. When required to support the local hazardous waste assessments required by this section, the small quantity generator notification and verification program required pursuant to s. 403.7234<http://www.leg.state.fl.us/STATUTES/index.cfm?App_mode=Display_Statute&Search_String=&URL=0400-0499/0403/Sections/0403.7234.html>, and the reporting requirements of s. 403.7236<http://www.leg.state.fl.us/STATUTES/index.cfm?App_mode=Display_Statute&Search_String=&URL=0400-0499/0403/Sections/0403.7236.html>, a county may impose a small quantity generator notification and verification surcharge of up to $50 on the business or occupational license or renewal of any firm that is classified as a small quantity generator of hazardous wastes. A county may contract with or otherwise enter into an agreement with the county tax collector to collect the annual surcharge.
