(c) Applicants may submit applications and renewal applications for a license under these sections electronically by the Internet through texas.gov at www.texas.gov. The department is authorized to collect fees, in amounts determined by the Texas Online Authority, to recover costs associated with application and renewal application processing through texas.gov.

(d) An applicant whose payment for the application and initial license fee is returned due to any reason including insufficient funds, account closed, or payment stopped shall be allowed to reinstate the application by remitting to the department a money order or check for guaranteed funds in the amount of the application and initial license fee plus the Non-Sufficient Fund Fee within 30 days after the date of receipt of the department's notice. An application is incomplete until the fee has been received and cleared through the appropriate financial institution.

(e) An applicant whose license has been approved and whose payment for the license fee is returned due to any reason including insufficient funds, account closed, or payment stopped shall remit to the department a money order or check for guaranteed funds in the amount of the license fee plus the Non-Sufficient Fund Fee within 30 days after the date of receipt of the department's notice. Failure to comply with this subsection renders the application and the license approval invalid.

(f) A license holder whose payment for the renewal fee is returned due to any reason including insufficient funds, account closed, or payment stopped shall remit to the department a money order or check for guaranteed funds in the amount of the renewal fee plus the Non-Sufficient Fund Fee within 30 days after the date of receipt of the department's notice. Failure to comply shall result in non-renewal of the license. If a renewal license has already been issued, it shall be invalid.

(g) Upon return unclaimed of the department's notice, as set out in subsections (c) - (e) of this section, the department shall mail the notice to the applicant or license holder by certified mail. If a money order or check for guaranteed funds is not received by the department's cashier within 30 days after the postmarked date on the certified mailing, the approval granted or license issued shall be invalid.

(h) The department may notify the applicant or the license holder's owner that the person has failed to comply with this section and that any approval granted or license issued is invalid.

(i) Initial application or renewal fees shall be refunded only if the fee amounts paid are in excess of the correct fee amount or if there is a double payment. The department shall not refund fees if the application was abandoned due to the applicant's failure to respond within 90 days to a written request from the department.

(j) All fees shall be submitted in the form of personal checks, certified checks, money orders, or checks from state agencies, municipalities, counties, or other political subdivisions of the state made payable to the department.
