AIMS Updates – Nov. 1, 2021

TABC has launched a new AIMS Updates webpage containing an ongoing list of Alcohol Industry Management System (AIMS) improvements and issues the agency is working to resolve.

Updates for Oct. 26, 2021 included fixes for the following issues:

  • Application Summary Page – Incorrect Business Name: While the Applicant Name field accurately displays the corporate permittee name, the Business Name field repeats the corporate permittee name instead of displaying the business name.
  • Out-of-State Shippers Permits – Location Additional Information: When the application asks, “Does the applicant hold a Winery Permit in the State of Texas?” and the applicant selects “No,” an error message is displayed that reads, “You are not qualify for Out-of-state Direct Shipper permit.” Because of this, the applicant can’t go to the next screen to complete the process and obtain a DS permit.
  • Application Summary Page – City/County Certification – Signature Line: Need separate signature and date lines for the city secretary and county clerk.

Applying With Paper Applications

While using AIMS is the fastest and preferred way to apply for a license or permit, TABC also accepts applications by mail. However, processing time for a paper applications will be significantly longer than submitting through AIMS. You must mail a complete application to the address provided below.

A complete application includes:

  • All questions answered and required documents (if applicable, all required city, county and comptroller certifications, legal notice, completed bond, lease agreement(s), loan documentation, any other agreements, school notices, picture of 60-day sign posted).
  • Payment for application fees, if applicable.
  • Applicant’s signature before a notary public.

Send your application and payment together in one envelope. Your application will not be accepted for processing if it doesn’t include payment. Payments must be made with a cashier’s check, money order, or company check payable to the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts. We do not accept personal checks.
