Renewal Fee Waiver

Specified on-sale licensees may be eligible for fee waivers of licenses with expiration dates between March 1, 2021, and February 28, 2023.

STEP ONE: NOTICE

Wait for your annual Application for Renewal of Alcoholic Beverage License to arrive in the mail. Renewal notices typically arrive 60 days prior to the license expiration date.

STEP TWO: VERIFY

Use ABC’s Verify Eligibility tool to determine which license types are eligible for a fee waiver and identify your remaining balance due, if any.

STEP THREE: SUBMIT

Submit your complete renewal fee waiver request:

  • Renewal notice
  • Form ABC-SCF
  • Payment for remaining balance due, if any

Governor Gavin Newsom has signed a relief package that authorizes ABC to waive license renewal fees for eligible licensees. Review the Requirements and Guidelines for detailed information. The criteria for fee waivers is as follows:

  1. The license type shall be one of the following: 02[1], 23, duplicate 23, 40, 41, 42, 47, duplicate 47, 48, duplicate 48, 49, duplicate 49, 50, 51, 52, 57, duplicate 57, 58, 59, 60, 61, 64, 68, 69, 71, duplicate 71, 72, duplicate 72, 74, 75, duplicate 75, 76, duplicate 76, 77, 78, duplicate 78, 83, 86, 87, duplicate 87, 99; and
  2. The license shall have been active during the period from March 1, 2020, through December 31, 2020, inclusive; and
  3. The licensed premises’ primary operation was disrupted by health and safety restrictions imposed in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic;
  4. For 02 licensees only: In addition to the above criteria, I certify that under the above license number, produced less than 100,000 gallons of wine in fiscal year 2020-2021, and that I will submit the accurate production volume on my winegrowers annual report.

Eligible licensees may request a fee waiver by submitting Form ABC-SCF prior to the expiration date of the license as provided on the renewal notice, plus any extensions provided by the Department as noticed on the 2021 Renewal Payment Extension schedule.

Approved renewal fee waiver requests are effective only for the one-year license renewal period. Licensees must submit a renewal fee waiver request each year to receive a fee waiver during the annual license period of March 1, 2021, through February 28, 2023.

Footnotes:

  • [1] The renewal fee waiver is available only to type 02 licenses that produced less than 100,000 gallons of wine during the fiscal year in which the license expires. Licensees holding a type 02 license should visit our website for further guidance specific to winegrowers. Duplicate 02 licenses are not eligible for fee relief.
