DBPR Offers Fee Holiday on License Renewals in 2014 and 2015

According to Chapter 455.219(1) — Fees; receipts; disposition; periodic management reports — Each board within the department shall determine by rule the amount of license fees for its profession, based upon department-prepared long-range estimates of the revenue required to implement all provisions of law relating to the regulation of professions by the department and any board; however, when the department has determined, based on the long-range estimates of such revenue, that a profession’s trust fund moneys are in excess of the amount required to cover the necessary functions of the board, or the department when there is no board, the department may adopt rules to implement a waiver of license renewal fees for that profession for a period not to exceed 2 years, as determined by the department.

Therefore, the Construction Industry Licensing Board (CILB) and Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR) have approved a $100.00 FEE HOLIDAY for the 2014 and 2015 renewal cycles for certified and registered contractors who are renewing their licenses. During the fee holiday, certified and registered contractors renewing an active license will have their fees reduced by $100.00. Certified and registered contractors renewing their inactive licenses will have their $50.00 inactive renewal fee waived in its entirety. All contractors (active or inactive) will still be required to pay the $5.00 unlicensed activity fee and the $4.00 Florida Building Commission fee in order to renew their license. All fees must be paid by the renewal deadline (August 31, 2014 for certified and August 31, 2015 for registered) to avoid additional fees. All licensees will be sent a renewal notice outlining the required renewal fees set forth above. However, it is the responsibility of each licensee to ensure that their license is timely renewed.

Please Note: When renewing on-line, the appropriate deduction will automatically be applied. When submitting a check, please be sure to deduct the appropriate amount before writing your check.

Please contact the Department at (850) 487–1395 if you have any questions, problems renewing or logging into your account.
