Pursuant to 2017 Wisconsin Act 319, beginning August 1, 2018, an applicant for an initial credential may apply for a reduction of the initial credential fee that is equal to 10% of the initial fee. Qualification is based on the federal adjusted gross income being at or below 180% of the federal poverty guideline prescribed for the applicant's family household size by the United States Department of Health and Human Services. To determine eligibility please visit the United States Department of Health and Human Services website prior to submitting Form 3217.
Wis. Stat. § 440.08(2), the required renewal date for the Auctioneer credential is 12/14/even years. Should you receive your initial credential in the months leading up to this date, you are still required to renew your license by the statutorily defined date.
Note: Auctioneers must hold a current seller's permit issued by the Department of Revenue, unless exempt. Please call the Department of Revenue at (608) 266‑2776 to obtain more information about the seller's permit.
Exam Exemption Based on Reciprocity
Applicants with a current Auctioneer license (not an Apprentice Auctioneer license) in Arkansas, Illinois, Kentucky, North Carolina, Tennessee, or Texas may request an exam exemption. See page 3 of application (Form #2077) for further details.
The Department may grant a temporary permit to applicants who apply to register by examination which makes them eligible to practice for 60 days. An additional $10.00 temporary permit fee is charged. The permit is not renewable and cannot be extended. Applicants who have not passed the examination before their temporary permits expire are not eligible to practice until they pass the exam and are registered.
