NYS Liquor Authority Updates License Application Rules

The Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) Law in NYS is being updated. 

new law provides for payment receipts for applications, which is effective 2/20/2022. It also provides that the status of all licenses / permits should be posted on its website by 12/22/2022. This website will also provide the anticipated application process length of time as well as notifying applicants when estimates change.   


Another new law modifies penalties for violations. 1st time administrative / paperwork violators will now be given opportunities to fix errors (15 to 20 days) if the violation is considered minor instead of facing misdemeanor penalties.
