Paying a DEP Division of Air Quality Bill Online
(excluding annual emission fee bills)

There are two ways to pay a DAQ bill online.  These methods can be used to pay any DAQ bill other than annual emission fee bills, which cannot be paid online.  One method requires you to have a DEP Online account, and the other does not. 

The simplest method is:

  1. Go to http://njdeponline.com.

  2. Scroll down to the bottom of the page, and find the box on the right labeled “Non-Registered Services.”  In this box, click on the “Pay a Paper Invoice” link.



  3. On the next screen (“Express Payment – Enter Invoice Number”), enter the invoice number found on the top right corner of the bill.  It should be a nine-digit number with “Invoice No.” appearing above it. 
    * Note: If there is a leading zero for the first digit, you must enter this digit in order for the system to recognize the invoice number.

  4. Choose the electronic payment method you wish to use (either credit card or e-check) by clicking on the corresponding button.

  5. Follow the payment instructions on the subsequent screens.

  6. For Preconstruction Permit Renewals Only: To print the updated 5-year certificate, follow the instructions found here.

If you would rather pay the invoice while logged into your DEP Online account, you can do that using this method:

  1. While logged into DEP Online, click on the blue “Payments” tab at the top of the screen.




  2. After the Payments screen loads, click on the link in the bar below the tabs labeled “Payment By Invoice Number.” 




  3. On the next screen (“Express Payment – Enter Invoice Number”), enter the invoice number found on the top right corner of the bill.  It should be a nine-digit number with “Invoice No.” appearing above it. 
    * Note: If there is a leading zero for the first digit, you must enter this digit in order for the system to recognize the invoice number.


  4. Choose the electronic payment method you wish to use (either credit card or e-check) by clicking on the corresponding button.

  5. Follow the payment instructions on the subsequent screens.

  6. For Preconstruction Permit Renewals Only: To print the updated 5-year certificate, follow the instructions found here
