Yes, if you get an NFA, no further action, letter from the state, its okay.

Just to update with my situation: we decided to perform an exploratory dig (4 ft wide and 3 ft deep) in the suspected area as suggested by the company that I hired to do GPR scan. It came back clean, there's no sign of the tank, there is sign of a cut-off oil pipe though. It's explained that the signal from GPR could have been a bounce back from filling in the last removal.

The company that the seller hired to remove the oil tank sent a letter to both town and fire department stating that the oil tank was removed in 2004.

I'm happy to close this issue.

Happy it worked out for you. Good to hear happy endings to oil tank issues. Most are not. All the best with the new property. Thank you for providing the end of the story too.
