To begin the background check process, each applicant will need to pay a non-refundable fee of $50.00 at time of application. If any solicitor has been convicted of a felony or any misdemeanor involving fraud, theft or moral turpitude he or she will be denied a solicitors license. The background check shall be good for the period of January 1st through December 31st of the application year. The background check can take between 1 to 5 business days for completion.
NOTE: We do not accept background checks conducted by any other party or provided by the applicant.
Once the background check is approved, you will be contacted to pick up the business license and solicitor’s certificate. Each solicitor must carry their certificate at all times.
