I let my collection services license expire. How do I have it reinstated?

Jason S -

By statute, once your license expires you must cease all collection activity in Tennessee. If your license is expired less than sixty (60) days you may still file for renewal on www.core.tn.gov as you normally would. There will be a $100 late fee assessed. If you license is expired more than sixty (60) days you will need to choose the REAPPLY application instead of renewal on www.core.tn.gov.



All licenses are subject to late renewal for sixty (60) days following the license expiration date. A penalty of $100 will be assessed on all late renewals.



Licensees failing to complete all requirements, pay renewal fee, and penalty within sixty (60) days after the expiration date must submit a new application. Please instruct licensees to send an email for next steps.
