Section: Rules, regulations adopted by DEP
3. a. There is levied upon the owner or operator of every sanitary landfill facility a solid waste services tax. The services tax shall be imposed on the owner or operator at the rate of $1.65 per ton of solid waste on all solid waste accepted for disposal at a sanitary landfill facility. No services tax shall be levied on the owner or operator of a sanitary landfill facility for the acceptance for disposal of the waste products resulting from the operation of a resource recovery facility.
The services tax imposed by this subsection shall expire on the first day of the first month after the effective date of P.L.2007, c.311 (C.13:1E-96.2 et al.). However, this expiration shall not affect any obligation, lien or duty to pay taxes that may be due with respect to the imposition of any levy, or interest or penalties that may accrue by virtue of any assessment, which may be made with respect to taxes levied for any taxable year or part of a taxable year, prior to the first day of the first month after the effective date of P.L.2007, c.311 (C.13:1E-96.2 et al.), nor shall this expiration affect the legal authority to assess and collect the taxes that may be due and payable under subsection a. of section 3 of P.L.1985, c.38 (C.13:1E-138), as the case may be, together with such interest and penalties as would accrue thereon under section 6 of P.L.1985, c.38 (C.13:1E-141), nor shall the expiration invalidate any assessment or affect any proceeding for the enforcement thereof.

c. (Deleted by amendment, P.L.2007, c.311).
d. If any owner or operator of a sanitary landfill facility determines the quantity of solid waste accepted for disposal by a measure other than tons, the taxes imposed pursuant to the provisions of this section shall be levied at an equivalent rate as determined by the director.
e. No taxes shall be levied on the owner or operator of a sanitary landfill facility for the acceptance of solid waste generated exclusively by an agency of the federal government if a solid waste collector submits to the owner or operator an itemized invoice, signed and verified by an authorized officer of the federal agency, indicating the number of tons of solid waste to be disposed of, and a copy of the contract with the federal agency for the collection of solid waste with an effective date prior to May 1, 1985. Taxes shall be levied on the owner or operator for acceptance of solid waste generated by a federal agency if the contract between the federal agency and the solid waste collector was entered into, or renewed, on or after May 1, 1985.
