Application Fee Waiver Eligibility & Application

Phoenix
March 29, 2022

Arizona Revised Statutes §41-1080.01 provides for a waiver of “any fee charged for an initial license for any individual or applicant whose family income does not exceed 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines if the individual is applying for that specific license in this state for the first time.” 

To apply:

1. Review the current Federal Poverty Guidelines relative to your family/household size as reported on your most recently filed federal income tax return. Double the annual income listed in the appropriate Federal Poverty Guidelines chart to arrive at the 200% level. Compare that value to the Adjusted Gross Income reported on your most recently filed federal income tax return.

2. If after reviewing this information you believe you are income-eligible, download and complete the Fee Waiver Application. Submit the completed application and supporting documentation to [email protected]. Applications are processed within 5 business days.

3. If approved, proceed to the application portal to log in and resume your submission. On the payment screen, check both the General Fund Fee Waiver and the Application Fee Waiver boxes to proceed.
