Your Michigan Motor Fuel Retail License must be renewed annually before it expires on November 30th of each year.
A separate Motor Fuel Retail License from the Michigan Department of Agriculture (MDAR) must be obtained for each retail outlet owned by a person or business. A retail outlet is defined as an establishment at which motor fuel is sold or offered for sale to the public. Licenses are non-transferable; a change in ownership or location will require a new license.
The original and renewal fees are the same: $100 for each location, payable by check or money order payable to the State of Michigan. Questions can be answered by the Michigan Department of Agriculture at (517) 241-6666.
To register by mail with a check or money order, obtain a printable application form here. You can also renew and pay on-line through the Michigan Business One Stop Portal, where you must register for a One Stop account or login if you are already registered. Registration is a one-time-only activity.
