To use this optional payment method you will need your license account number (BUS-0000000) as well as your credit or debit card number. Credit card payments may ONLY be made online, or in person in our office. Telephone credit card payments can not be accepted.

If your business requires a state license, you may pay your renewal here, but you must provide a copy of your state license to us in order to receive your renewal. We also require a current valid copy of your verifiable government issued photo ID before your license may be issued each year. Most people use their driver's license. If you renewed your driver's license within the past year, then the copy we have on file is probably expired....please provide us with a clear color photo copy of your current ID.
