2021 Schedule of Annual Fees

The following schedule of Annual fees include all applicable surcharges. (Except for Type 67 and 80.  The surcharge amount for these license types is dependent on the number of rooms involved and will add an additional $5 or $10 to the total annual fee) 

Explanation of the Tiered Fee Structure

For some license types, the annual fees charged will vary based on production, population, or the number of months of the year the licensee operates.  These tiers are briefly described below:

  • Production-based fees:  For License Type 02 Winegrowers and Type 22 Wine Blender, the Annual Fee is based on the number of gallons produced.  Production is reported annually and there is a process to compute an additional payment or refund, if the licensee’s production moves them in to a tier that is different from the previous year.
  • Population-based fees:  For On-Sale General licenses, the Annual Fee is based on the population of the city in which the licensed premises is located.  There are three tiers, cities with populations over 40,000, cities with population between 20,000 and 40,000, and then all other jurisdictions.
  • Seasonal Fees:  For seasonal licenses, Annual Fees vary based on the number of months the licensee has indicated they will operate.  These fees generally vary based on three-month increments.  The ABC no longer issues new seasonal licenses.
