TABC Executive Director's Open Letter to the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Industry

August 7, 2020 "This August marks my third anniversary as executive director of the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission. When I arrived, there were a number of challenges to address, particularly the agency's relationship with the alcoholic beverage industry. Since then, I've made it one of my top priorities to engage industry members, regain their trust and change the way the agency interacts with businesses. Three years later, I'm proud to say that TABC has made remarkable progress toward that goal. Then COVID-19 hit and our worlds were turned upside down." Read more.

Statement from TABC Chairman Kevin J. Lilly

"Strength through diversity is one of the founding principles of our nation. As millions turn their eyes to Houston for the services honoring George Floyd, I think it's appropriate for all of us at the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission to reflect on the incredible outpouring of support for the Floyd family as well as the calls to action demanding that each and every person be treated with the respect and dignity they deserve. I'm proud to stand with the men and women of TABC as we commit to upholding public safety while honoring the ideals of diversity and justice that every person is guaranteed. Each of us in law enforcement is a member of a community, and by working together with our neighbors, we can promote a safer and more inclusive world for our children."

Agent's Licenses & Permits Eliminated

This notice is for distillers, distributors, wholesalers, nonresident sellers, and their representatives. Beginning July 1, 2019, TABC will no longer accept or process applications for A, BK, DK, and T licenses/permits (agents of businesses that manufacture or distribute alcoholic beverages). TABC will return any such license/permit application and fees that it receives after July 1. This action is necessary in order to implement recent changes in the law that eliminate A, BK, DK, and T licenses/permits on September 1, 2019. For those without an agent’s license/permit that wish to act as an agent between now and August 31, you may do so without TABC’s prior approval. Agent activities and employer liability are still regulated under Texas Alcoholic Beverage Code, Chapters 15, 35, 36, and 73. Additionally, the Texas Legislature updated Sections 11.72 and 61.86 of the Code to require that license/permit holders who are represented by an agent must maintain records relating to the agent’s activities for four years from the date the record is created.
