Public Notice - Updated Criminal Conviction Guidelines

The Texas Commission of Licensing and Regulation (Commission) provides this public notice that, at their regularly scheduled meeting held October 20, 2009, the Commission adopted the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation's (Department) updated Criminal Conviction Guidelines pursuant to Texas Occupations Code, §53.025(a). These guidelines describe the process by which the Department determines whether a criminal conviction renders an applicant an unsuitable candidate for the license, or whether a conviction warrants revocation or suspension of a license previously granted. The guidelines present the general factors that are considered in all cases and the reasons why particular crimes are considered to relate to each type of license issued by the Department.

House Bill 2447, Acts of the 81st Texas Legislature, Regular Session, 2009, transferred the regulation of property tax professionals from the Board of Tax Professional Examiners to the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation effective June 19, 2009, and amended Texas Occupations Code, Chapter 1151 relating to the regulation of property tax professionals.

The updated Criminal Conviction Guidelines include Property Tax Professionals and will become a part of the overall guidelines that are already in place for other Department programs. The Department presented the guidelines applicable to property tax professionals to the Tax Professionals Advisory Committee at their meeting of October 14, 2009, and received recommendation of approval.

A copy of the updated Criminal Conviction Guidelines is posted on the Department's website and may be downloaded at www.license.state.tx.us. You may also contact the Enforcement Division at (512) 539-5600 or by email at enforcement@license.state.tx.us to obtain a copy of the updated guidelines.
