Fees.

(1) Licensing fee. An operator shall submit to the department of health a licensing fee according to Table 1 of this section prior to the department of health issuing a TWH operating license. Except as provided in subsections (2) and (3) of this section, the licensing fee consists of two portions:
(a) An administrative portion according to Table 1 of this section; and
(b) A facility portion, based on the maximum occupancy of the TWH, according to Table 1 of this section. For purposes of this section, maximum occupancy is the greatest number of occupants that reside in the TWH during the calendar year.
(2) Self-survey program. If an operator is a participant of the self-survey program described in WAC 246-358-027, the operator may pay the administrative portion only of the licensing fee according to Table 1 of this section.

(3) Minimum licensing fee. The minimum licensing fee is ninety dollars.
(4) Late fees. The department of health may charge a late fee according to Table 1 of this section in addition to the licensing fee when:

(b) Funds must be submitted to the department of health within thirty calendar days of the operator being made aware of the discrepancy.
(c) Additional occupants accounted for in this subsection may not contribute to exceeding the maximum capacity of the TWH according to WAC 246-358-029.
(6) Refunds.
(a) The operator shall submit a written request to the department of health for any refund; and
(b) If the operator provides documentation to the department of health that the TWH was not occupied during the license period, the department of health shall refund fees paid by the operator according to the following conditions:
(i) The department of health will refund the licensing fees paid, less a fifty dollar processing fee, if an application has been received but no prelicensure inspection has been performed by the department of health; or
(ii) The department of health will refund two-thirds of the licensing fees paid, less a fifty dollar processing fee, if an application has been received and a prelicensure inspection has been performed by the department of health.
(c) The department of health will not refund applicant licensing fees under subsection (1)(b) of this section if:
(i) The department of health has performed more than one on-site inspection for any purpose; or
(ii) One year has elapsed since a license application was received by the department of health, but no license was issued because the applicant failed to complete requirements for licensure.
(d) If the operator provides documentation to the department of health of fewer occupants than the maximum occupants identified on the application for an operating license according to WAC 246-358-025, the department of health shall refund fees paid by the operator according to following conditions:
(i) The department of health will refund the amount of four dollars for every occupant fewer than the maximum number of occupants identified on the application, if an application has been received and no prelicensure inspection has been conducted;
