Renewals and Status Change

Online Renewals

If you are selected for audit, answer yes to a mandatory disclosure, or elect to pay by check you will need to mail in the last page of the renewal with documentation or your check. Paying by credit or debit card, no audit, and all no answers allows you to be done as soon as you complete the online process. 
If you are unable to, or prefer not to renew online, refer to the forms page for the correct paper renewal application.
