​Local Beer and Wine License Deadline Extended


In response to the State of Emergency declared by the United States of America and the State of North Carolina, and Mecklenburg County's Stay at Home Order, the Office of the Tax Collector (OTC) is issuing an extension to the application and payment of the local Beer & Wine Privilege License.

The Alcohol and Beverage Commission (ABC) Chairman A.D. " Zander" Guy established a grace period for the registration/renewal process of licenses until June 30, 2020. Therefore, the OTC has extended the due date to obtain a local license from May 1, 2020 to July 1, 2020.  Although this change affects the due date, the license year will remain the same: May 1 – April 30.

Under North Carolina General Statute 105-113.70, each person who receives an ABC permit shall obtain the corresponding local license, if any, under this Article. All local licenses are issued by the city or county where the establishment for which the license is sought is located.

Mecklenburg County mailed annual Beer & Wine License Applications on March 26, 2020. The due date on the application indicates May 1. The due date for application and payment is now extended to July 1.

If you have any questions, please contact the OTC via phone at 704-432-4200, or email. For more information or for payment, visit the OTC website.
