Forfeiture of Performance Bond

Forfeiture of Performance Bond (Wine and Beer Retailer's Permit (BG) or Beer Retail Dealer's On-Premise License (BE) without a Food and Beverage Certificate in Dallas, Bexar, Harris and Tarrant Counties) Code 11.61(b-1):

  • When a violation of the Alcoholic Beverage Code results in a suspension or civil penalty, the $2,000 performance bond is forfeited to the commission. Before the suspended license or permit may be reinstated, the licensee or permittee must furnish a second surety bond in an amount of $4,000.
  • If the same license or permit is suspended a second time, the bond is again forfeited. Before the suspended license or permit may be reinstated, the licensee or permittee must furnish a third surety bond in the amount of $6,000.
  • If the same license or permit is suspended a third time, the bond is again forfeited and the license or permit shall be cancelled by the commission.

A hearing cannot be requested on the forfeiture of a performance bond.

NOTE: A Performance Bond is not needed if the BG or BE is issued to a fraternal or veterans organization.

If a conduct surety bond is in place at the time of the third forfeiture of the performance bond, it too shall be forfeited.
