C. Any person governed by subsection A of this section who has not obtained a license from the Commissioner or his agent prior to distributing, selling, or offering or exposing for sale, seed in the Commonwealth shall be given a grace period of fifteen working days from issuance of notification within which to obtain a license without penalty. Any person who fails to obtain a license by the fifteenth day of the grace period shall pay to the Commissioner a late fee of fifty dollars which shall be in addition to the license fee amount.

Every such license is valid through January 31 of the next ensuing calendar year or until issuance of the renewal license, whichever event first occurs, if the holder thereof shall have filed a renewal application with the Commissioner or his agent on or before December 31 of the year for which the Commissioner or his agent issued the current license.
E. The Commissioner shall refuse to issue the license to any person not in compliance with the provisions of this article, and shall revoke any license subsequently found not to be in compliance with any provision of this article.
