4.64.070   Permit term, renewal, and expiration.
   (a)   Term of permit. The term of a permit is one year. A permit is invalid upon expiration.
   (b)   Renewal of permit. The department shall renew a permit upon timely payment of the annual permit fee provided that the retailer is in compliance with this chapter, as amended. The department may, in its discretion, agree to renew any expired permit within the three-month period following expiration if the retailer pays the annual permit fee and applicable late charges. For every calendar month, or fraction thereof, that a retailer fails to renew an expired permit, a late charge equal to twenty percent of the annual permit fee shall be assessed. A permit renewed within three calendar months of expiration shall be treated as if timely renewed.
   (c)   Issuance of permit after revocation or expiration of permit. To apply for a new permit more than three calendar months after expiration of a permit or following revocation of a permit that was wrongly issued, a retailer must submit a complete application for a permit, along with the application fee and annual permit fee. The department shall issue a permit pursuant to the requirements of Section 4.64.060.
