When you receive notice that it’s time to renew your liquor license, in addition to paying your state renewal fee, you should also contact the County Tax Office to pay the appropriate fee for the County Liquor Control Permit. This fee is always one-half of the state fee. Renewals for the County permit can also be processed by mail, or done at the downtown location.
