R.I. Gen. Laws § 5-76-4

§ 5-76-4. Notice of intent to inform agency.

(a) If the tax administrator determines from the information furnished pursuant to § 5-76-3, or otherwise, that any person who holds a license issued by any agency has neglected or refused to file any tax returns or to pay any tax administered by the tax administrator and that such tax matter is not pending administrative or appellate review, the tax administrator shall send a written notice to such person informing the person of the tax administrator’s intention to request such agency or authority not to renew such license upon expiration thereof.

(b) Within twenty-one (21) days from the date of such notice, the licensee may request in writing a conference with the tax administrator or his/her designee, in order to show proof of payment of all taxes or for the purpose of entering into a time-payment agreement for the delinquent taxes that is satisfactory to the tax administrator.

(c) If upon the expiration of twenty-one (21) days from the date of the notice to the licensee, or, if a conference has been requested, after a conference has been held, the licensee has not demonstrated to the satisfaction of the tax administrator that the licensee has filed all required returns and paid all required taxes, or that the licensee has not entered into a time-payment arrangement satisfactory to the tax administrator, the tax administrator shall notify the agency or authority in writing that the licensee is delinquent in filing tax returns and/or remitting taxes due. The tax administrator shall send a copy of the notification to the licensee.
