Cash Law


Beer purchased from a beer distributor or local distributor are subject to cash law and must be paid for in cash (no credit) on or before delivery. 

  • If you give a check in lieu of cash and it is dishonored, the seller of the beer is required by law to report any dishonored check to the TABC.
  • The retailer's permit will be placed on the statewide delinquent list until the local distributor notifies the TABC that the retailer has paid in full.


NOTE: Repeat violations of dishonored checks may result in the cancellation or suspension of the permit.
