Renewal notices for the professions are sent the first month of the quarter in which registration is due to expire. Renewal notices for the occupations are sent approximately forty-five (45) days prior to expiration. Please note, that while the AZBTR sends renewal notices, failure to receive a notice does not mean any applicable penalty fees will be waived. It is the registrant's responsibility to renew there registration.
Renewals can be mailed or hand-delivered to our office.
Tips for submitting your renewal:
- Complete and sign the renewal form of your respective discipline. Renewal Forms can be found here.
- Include payment in the correct amount (see Fees or your respective discipline's renewal form). Pursuant to A.R.S. 32-127(B) If the renewal fee is not paid prior to the expiration date, it shall be accompanied by a penalty fee equal to one‑sixth of the renewal fee for each year or fraction of a year of delinquency.
If you have any questions regarding renewals, please contact our renewals specialist Liliana Ruiz.
Including Penalty Fees with your Renewal
If your renewal fee is not paid before the expiration date, you become delinquent and a flat penalty fee must be added to your total renewal fee. If you are delinquent, you may not perform the duties of your discipline within the Board’s jurisdiction until you renew. There are no partial penalty fees. The penalty fee is the same if the renewal fee is a day late or 365 days late. Disciplines where delinquency may carry over one or two years will incur additional penalty fees per year (see example below for clarification). You will remain delinquent until you renew and pay the required fees. If you remain delinquent beyond your discipline’s renewal period, your registration will be canceled and you must apply as a new registrant.
*Note: Fees used in example below are current as of August 17, 2016. Please see Fees page for current fee amounts.
