Annual Tier II Reporting
THE UPDATED 2021 SOFTWARE HAS NOT yet BEEN RELEASED BY EPA. PLEASE CHECK BACK IN DECEMBER 2021.
PLEASE DO NOT SUBMIT YOUR TIER II DATA UNTIL THE SOFTWARE HAS BEEN RELEASED OR YOU WILL HAVE TO RESUBMIT.
Step 1 - Reports must be electronic
Tier II Report must be submitted in electronic format (.t2s), we do not accept .zip files, .pdf files, or paper copies of the Tier II Form.
Step 2 - Electronic submissions
Facilities must submit their Tier II Report by creating an electronic submission using the EPA program Tier 2 Submit. Download the software from the link provided below. Enter your facility inventory in the database or import your facility inventory from last year. “Create Submission”, and save it for your records.
Use only current Tier 2 Submit Software http://www2.epa.gov/epcra-tier-i-and-tier-ii-reporting/tier2-submit-software
Single Point Submission
Step 3 - copy of submission
Send the .t2s as an email attachment to DHSEM.LocalPrepared@state.nm.us. Your submission must be in .t2s format.
If you can not send it as email, please copy the .t2s file to a CDROM or a USB Thumbdrive. Please ensure the file is there before you mail it.
NOTE: Do not send a .zip file, I will only except the .t2s file generated by the TierIISubmit program.
We do not require E-Plan submissions. The Department will not give credits for E-Plan submission or payment. After, we receive your submission, the administrator will validate your data, and if needed will contact you to revise your submission if it doesn’t meet our requirements or the intent of Tier II Reporting.
Step 4 - Payment Information
Facilities must provide a payment with the submittal determined by the following table. The payment must be in the form of check or money order. No credit card payments are acceptable. The State of New Mexico does not send invoices. You need to calculate your fee and make the payment on time before March 1, 2021. Fines may apply ($5,000) if you do not provide timely payment. If you need to check the amount of your fee, please call the Hazmat Coordinator. Overpayments will not be returned or refunded.
A facility’s Tier II Report submittal will be deemed complete when the State receives both the electronic submittal and the appropriate payment.

Calculation Instructions: If you have more than one facility in New Mexico, calculate the fees due for each facility and add those to find the total payment due with your Tier II submittal. If the total amount exceeds $250, then your payment will be exactly $250. Do not overpay! The Department will not issue a refund of your overpayment.
Make checks payable to: NM Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management. Cover letter for payment in MS Word format (optional). The cover letter is mandatory. If we cannot match your check to the Facility Name on the Tier II Report, your payment will not be processed and your submittal will be considered late.
Government agencies (local, tribal, state, and federal) are exempt from fees. Contractors who file Tier II Report on behalf of governmental entity site are also exempt.
