Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process.
Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes,
statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect.
If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has
not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already
been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes
made to the current law.

(Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2029)
Fees; returned checks; fines.
The fees for the administration and enforcement of this Act, including, but not limited to, original licensure, registration, renewal, and restoration fees, shall be set by the Department by rule. The fees shall be nonrefundable.
Any person who delivers a check or other payment to the Department that is
returned to the Department
unpaid by the financial institution upon which it is
drawn shall pay to the Department, in addition to the amount already owed to the
Department, a fine of $50.
The fines imposed by this Section are in addition to any other discipline
provided under this Act for unlicensed practice or practice on a nonrenewed
license or registration. The Department shall notify the person that payment of fees and fines
shall be paid to the Department by certified check or money order within 30 calendar
days of the notification. If, after the expiration of 30 days from the date
of the notification, the person has failed to submit the necessary remittance,
shall automatically terminate the license or registration or deny the
application, without a hearing. If, after termination or denial, the person
seeks a license or registration, the person shall apply to the Department for
restoration or issuance of the license or registration and pay all fees and
fines due to the Department. The Department may establish
a fee for the processing of an application for restoration of a license or
registration to pay all expenses of processing this application. The Department
may waive the fines due under this Section in individual cases where the
finds that the fines would be unreasonable or unnecessarily burdensome.
