(225 ILCS 443/105)
(Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2028)
Checks or order dishonored.
Any person who delivers a check or other payment to the Commission that is returned to the Commission unpaid by the financial institution upon which it is drawn shall pay to the Commission, in addition to the amount already owed, a fine of $50. If the check or other payment was for a renewal or issuance fee and that person practices without paying the renewal fee or issuance fee and the fine due, an additional fine of $100 shall be imposed. 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. The Commission shall notify the person that payment of fees and fines shall be paid to the Commission by certified check or money order within 30 calendar days after the notification. If, after the expiration of 30 days after the date of the notification, the person has failed to submit the necessary remittance, the Commission shall automatically terminate the license or deny the application, without hearing. If, after termination or denial, the person seeks a license, he or she shall apply to the Commission for restoration or issuance of the license and pay all fees and fines due to the Commission. The Commission may establish a fee for the processing of an application for restoration of a license to pay all expenses of processing the application. The Director may waive the fines due under this Section in individual cases where the Commission finds that the fines would be unreasonable or unnecessarily burdensome.
