Ohio Grants Liquor Permit Renewal Extension

The global Coronavirus Pandemic (COVID-19) has sent uncertainty rippling through businesses and households around the globe. As Liquor License Attorneys, we know that few industries have been hit as hard as the bar and restaurant industry. The Ohio Department of Liquor Control has announced some new guidance aimed at helping to ease the permit renewal burden on Ohio bar owners. 

Typically, District 2 (or the Western Portion of the State of Ohio) has liquor license renewals due annually on June 1st, 2020 – with renewal payment postmarked by May 18th, 2020. However, pursuant to recent guidance released by the Ohio Division of Liquor Control, that date is being waived at this time. While a new deadline has not yet been established, one is expected to be once the Director for the Department of Health lifts her order requiring establishments to close.

Any permit holder of a Class C or D liquor permit located in District 2 (or the Western Portion of the State of Ohio) who have on-premises general consumption permit renewals due on June 1st, 2020 will be eligible.

If you have already submitted your renewal, the Division of Liquor Control will contact you to discuss processing or delaying that renewal payment as well.

This will provide countless small businesses throughout Ohio with critical relief during this trying time – and the State of Ohio should be commended for its’ flexibility in this regard.
