Credit Law



Distilled spirits and wine may only be purchased from a wholesaler (W, X, LX) and is subject to Credit Law.

Ale and malt liquor purchased from a wholesaler that does not also hold a Distributor's (BB/BC/BD) license 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 TABC and your permit will be placed on the agency's internet based credit law delinquent list until the reporting wholesaler notifies the TABC that you have paid in full.

No wholesaler is permitted to sell to the retailer while on the credit law delinquent list.

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