Major Changes at the TABC are on the way.
Applications – If you are planning on opening a new business, or moving an existing one, between May and November of this year,
READ THIS NOW.
The TABC is transitioning to new software to process applications. This will significantly alter application timing and processing. To facilitate the switch to the new technology, the TABC will NOT accept any original applications for the month of August.
Any application received on or before July 31, 2021 will be considered incomplete unless all required information has been provide and all fees have been paid. If the application is not complete, it will be rejected.
If you plan to submit an application later this year, it is strongly recommended that the paperwork be placed on file with the TABC no later than May 1, 2021.
It should also be noted that pursuant to the changes in the last legislative section, the TABC has been allowed to create a new fee structure for applications and filings. While the new fees have not been published, it is anticipated that the normal application fees will increase. We will keep you posted when the new fees are published.
