Notice: License Renewal

If your massage therapist or massage therapy business license expires January 31, 2015 and you did not receive a postcard notice, please send an email to massagether@pr.mo.gov or fax to 573/751-0735 and request a renewal form. Please provide the name as listed on the license, as well as the mailing address. The online renewal window closes at midnight on January 31, 2015. If you renew the license on January 31st, you are strongly encouraged to do so before 11:45 p.m. as the volume of renewal submissions is typically large on the last day of the renewal cycle. When renewing online, please allow at least three (3) days for the renewal process to be completed, as the vendor must verify licensure and payment information.

If you mail your renewal form and fee, it must be postmarked no later than January 31, 2015. Due to the large volume of incoming mail at the end of the renewal cycle, it may take up to two (2) weeks for the renewal form and fee to be processed, as other professions are renewing licenses at this time as well. According to the Code of State Regulations 2197-2.050 (4) regarding massage therapist license renewal, "Failure of a licensee to receive the notice and application to renew his/her license shall not excuse him/her from the requirements of section 324.265, RSMo to renew that license." Similarly, 2197-5.040(3) of the Code of State Regulations concerning business license renewal states, "Failure of a licensee to receive the notice and application to renew his/her license shall not excuse him/her from the requirements of section 324.250, RSMo to renew that license." If the mailing address has changed since the last renewal cycle, please send an email to massagether@pr.mo.gov and include your name, license number, former and current address.
