Revenue and Regulatory Assessment Reporting

Guidance for submitting regulatory fees and financial reports related to water districts and water utilities. Although supervision of public water utilities has transferred to the Public Utilities Commission, the TCEQ will continue to collect regulatory fees on behalf of the PUC.

Water and wastewater utilities collect Regulatory Assessment Fees from retail customers. These fees were first authorized in 1993 to finance state regulatory programs. Investor-owned utilities, water districts, water supply corporations, and certain counties are required to collect the assessment from retail customers and send the amount collected to the TCEQ.

See an explanation of Regulatory Assessments Collected by Retail Public Utilities (RG-199).

New Online Reporting Tool

TCEQ is working to transition RAF reporting from a paper coupon with manual fee calculation to remittance through an on-line portal which auto calculates the RAF owed and offers e-Pay or invoice options.

The online portal will offer:
•auto calculated fee, and
•seamless transition from online reporting to online payment with credit card or electronic check (ACH) through TCEQ's ePay, or invoice by mail for those who prefer to pay by mail.

In December 2017, utilities will have the option to use paper reports ("coupons") or the online reporting system for the 2017 calendar year.  Starting in 2018, TCEQ will no longer be using paper RAF reports.  Payment is due January 30th of the following year.

Watch the website for updates and further instructions.
