c) Pursuant to this Section, as authorized by Section 12.5(k) of the Act, the Agency may issue refunds when a written request containing the applicable permit number, FEIN or SSN and refund amount requested is received from the permittee or applicant and one of the following circumstances are present:
1) the payment received is greater than the amount billed on the invoice for existing permits or indicated on the notice of fee due for new permits and no past due amounts are outstanding;
2) the amount billed is determined to be incorrect; or
3) a refund is required by order of the Pollution Control Board, by a court order or at the direction of the Comptroller's Office.
