Understanding the Process of Renewing Your California Liquor License
The most important factor to remember with regarding the renewal of your California liquor license is that it is your responsibility to make sure the renewal fee is paid. The ABC will send you a renewal notice, just as the DMV sends you a notice for your car registration. However, if the renewal notice does not reach you or is lost in the mail, it is still incumbent upon the licensee to pay the renewal fee on time.
Late fees on your California liquor license renewal can get hefty. If paid less than 60 days late, you’ll pay a 50% penalty. Then, after 60 days that penalty increases to 100%. Finally, after a 90 day delinquency, your license can be completely revoked.
