AUSTIN, Texas - On May 20, Governor Greg Abbott announced that he will allow Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC) license and permit renewals to occur after the 30 day grace period that is currently in place.
The governor's office says that late fees will be waived on any renewals with an expiration date on or after March 13, 2020.
"As we continue to safely and strategically open the state of Texas, we want to ensure financial barriers are removed for businesses that plan to open up to the public," said Governor Abbott. "By granting an extended renewal period and waiving license and permit renewal late fees, we are ensuring Texas entrepreneurs and business owners are supported as we kick-start our economy and continue to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic."
