Recently, we had a frustrated client come to us after he had to go in four times just to try and get his permit renewed by the TABC! We’ve been hearing lots of red tape horror stories like this, so we thought it would be good to give an overview of the renewal process.

First, a reminder that different types of permits have to be renewed at varying intervals of time. Many are every two years, but be sure to check the specifics on the TABC website.

Generally speaking, you’ll need the following items:

  • Trade Name
  • Mailing Address
  • Location Address
  • License Number (e.g. BQ 123456)
  • Costs of Permits/Fees
  • Application being filed
  • Contact Information
  • Signature, notarized

Also, restaurants will need to provide sales numbers of alcohol and food in order for the TABC to assess compliance with the conditions of the liquor license.

Interestingly, the TABC used to provide nearly all of the above information to permit holders who were up for renewal. As of about a month ago, however, it seems that there’s been a policy change and the burden now rests with the customer.

Confused? Frustrated? Ready to never deal with the TABC again?
