The Construction Industry Licensing Board and the Department of Business and Professional Regulation 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.
