Stewards that are required to file a Steward’s Report but are exempt from payment of fees because the aggregate quantity of kilograms that generated annualized fees of less than $250.00 will not receive an invoice.
Stewards who fail to pay fees by the dates specified above, may be subject to a penalty and interest payable in accordance with the Rules.
