IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR LICENSEES THAT USE THE PULSE SYSTEM
Effective December 11, 2012, the PULSE system will automatically generate an e-mail to you when certain changes to your license status occur, if you have a current e-mail address for business use on file in the system. Please see the list of the events table (.pdf) that will generate an e-mail notification.
Effective May 1, 2013, the technology surcharge is reduced to $25 [Minn. Stat. §45.24 (f)].
Minnesota law now requires any board or agency to assess a surcharge on all new licenses or registrations issued or renewed until June 30, 2015. Only those applicants already paying a current and separate Technology Surcharge are exempt from the new surcharge. The surcharge is 10 percent of the fee -- no less than $5 and no more than $150 -- on each business, commercial, professional, and occupational license or registration. This surcharge is being collected on behalf of the Minnesota Office of Enterprise Technology (OET) to fund a statewide electronic licensing system (M.S. 16E.22). It is identified on the Sircon and PULSE systems as the "OET surcharge." Please call 651-556-8005 for further information.
Changes impact real estate brokers and salespersons, appraisers, insurance producers and adjusters, prelicensing and continuing education providers. Take a few moments to review the information relevant to your particular license type or industry here. Also included are Frequently Asked Questions.
