Credit Law


Wine may only be purchased from a winery (G) and wholesaler (W, X, LX) and is subject to Credit Law. Ale and malt liquor purchased from a wholesaler (W) is subject to credit law.

  • If credit is extended, these alcoholic beverages, if purchased between the 1st and 15th of the month, must be paid for by the 25th of the month.
  • If they are purchased between the 16th and the last day of the month, they must be paid for by the 10th of the following month.

If not paid timely, the wholesaler is required by statute to report this non-payment to the commission and your permit will be placed on the agency's internet based credit law delinquent list until the reporting wholesaler notifies TABC that you have paid in full.


An action to cancel or suspend a permit may be initiated for repeat violations of being on the credit law delinquent list.
