As of July 1, 2015, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) has transitioned 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.
As of April 1, 2019, the convenience fee is 2.0% of the amount being charged + $0.50. If you select Pay via Credit Card, you will be transferred to the 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. As an example, if the DEP fee is $50.00, the total charge will be $51.50 (convenience fee = $1.50).
