TABC Offers Resources, Support for Businesses Affected by Hurricane Laura
AUSTIN — The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission is ready to assist Texans whose businesses suffered damage following Hurricane Laura’s landfall early Thursday.
While the storm’s worst effects were felt in neighboring Louisiana, TABC officials say businesses whose inventory was damaged by flooding, or those who need replacement documents from TABC, should contact their local office for assistance. Businesses may also obtain authorization to move product between locations.
“While officials in counties across Southeast Texas continue to assess the damage, it appears we have avoided the worst of the damage,” TABC Executive Director Bentley Nettles said. “Even so, it’s clear that tens of thousands of Texans are without power, and some businesses may need help as they begin the process of recovery.”
Business owners are encouraged to visit TABC’s Disaster Assistance webpage to learn more about available assistance, including:
- Forms for declaring damaged alcoholic beverage inventory
- Deadline extensions for license/permit renewals
- Waiving of penalties for late excise tax reports
- Information about the latest Credit Law Delinquent Lists

Business owners with additional questions may contact their local TABC office for more information.
