(1) Fees are payable in advance with the application, by check or warrant to the Department of Public Safety. The memo area of the check should read "Electrician License Fees."
(2) Notice of renewal shall be provided to each licensee no less than 30 days prior to the expiration of the current license.
(3) If a license is issued for less than the period of time specified in the table above, the fee shall be prorated according to the number of months for which the license is issued.
(4) A licensee who is on active military deployment for 91 or more consecutive calendar days during the term of a license may have the license period tolled as follows. "Tolled" means that the expiration date of the license shall be delayed for the period of time during which the license term is tolled.
a. A licensee who is on active military deployment for 91 or more consecutive calendar days during a licensing period may have the license terms tolled for one year.
b. A licensee who is on active military deployment for 366 or more consecutive calendar days during a licensing period may have the license terms tolled for two years.
c. A licensee who is on active military deployment for 91 or more consecutive calendar days but fewer than 366 consecutive calendar days may petition the board to have the license tolled for two years upon a showing of a special hardship which would not be alleviated by tolling the license term for only one year.
d. A licensee who requests that the term of a license be tolled pursuant to this subrule shall provide a copy of military orders showing the beginning and ending dates of the deployment or deployments which are the basis for the request.
(5) A licensee may obtain a replacement license for a license that has been lost. To order a replacement license, the licensee shall notify the board office in writing that the license has been lost and shall provide any information required by the board office, which may include, but is not limited to, the license number, the name of the licensee, and a description of the circumstances of the loss, if known. The fee for issuance of a replacement license shall be $15.

Exception: If a licensee who is located in an area covered by a disaster emergency proclamation issued by the governor pursuant to Iowa Code section 29C.6 which is currently in force or has been in force within the previous 90 days certifies to the board that the license was lost as a direct result of conditions which relate to the issuance of the disaster emergency proclamation, the fee for replacement of the license shall be waived.

(6) Refunds of license fees shall be made under the following circumstances:
a. If an error on the part of the staff or the applicant or licensee has resulted in an overpayment of fees, the refund shall be in the amount of overpayment and shall be made if the overpayment is discovered by staff of the board or if the overpayment is discovered by the applicant or licensee and the applicant or licensee requests a refund.
b. If an applicant for an initial license or a renewal license dies prior to the effective date of a license for which the applicant has applied and paid the applicable fee, the license fee shall be refunded to the estate of the applicant upon receipt of a request from the estate of the applicant, accompanied by a certified copy of the death certificate.
(7) The fee for submitting a petition for eligibility determination as defined in subrule 502.8(2) is $25.
(8) The board shall waive any fee charged to an applicant for a license if the applicant's household income does not exceed 200 percent of the federal poverty income guidelines and the applicant is applying for the license for the first time in this state.
