License Renewal

Walton County licenses expire August 31 of every year. The renewal period is August 1 through August 31.  Registered and Specialty Contractors if you renew your license after August 31, there will be a $25.00 late charge. If you haven't renewed your license by December 1, you will be required to pay the license inactive fee in addition to the renewal fee, either active or inactive, for the year in which the license is delinquent. This fee will be collected in addition to the late charge of $25.00.

Registered and Specialty Contractors: If you do not renew your license for two consecutive years, your license will be purged from our system. You will have to apply again as a new applicant and be responsible for any fees for the years in which the license was not renewed.  To renew your license, please bring or send the following to our office:

  • License fee
