Section 45-25-240.26

Retrieval or voiding of license.

In cases where a personal check given for a license is found to be noncollectible for any reason, the tax assessor shall notify the revenue officer who shall make a reasonable attempt to retrieve the license in question. In the event that the license cannot be retrieved, the revenue officer shall so state and such statement shall constitute authorization for the tax assessor to void any license in question. Once such license has been voided, the tax assessor shall receive credit for the cost of the license plus the issuance fee. The appropriate state office shall mark the records pertaining to the void license and upon inquiry by law enforcement agencies shall notify the agencies that the party in question is operating under a void license. All violations shall be prosecuted in accordance with current law.
