TABC Now Accepting Consumer Delivery Permit Applications
This notice is for persons interested in applying for TABC’s new Consumer Delivery Permit.

Consumer Delivery Permit: This allows the permit holder to pick up alcohol from an authorized retailer and deliver it to an adult consumer who purchased the alcohol remotely.

Application: The Consumer Delivery Permit application form is now available on TABC’s website. Eligible parties may download the form and begin applying today.

Fee: The fee for the Consumer Delivery Permit is $10,000. The permit is valid for two years. The holder may renew the permit for the same amount at the end of each two-year period.

Application Submission: Applicants must submit their completed application along with the $10,000 fee (via cashier’s check, money order, or company check that is payable to the Comptroller of Public Accounts) to P.O. BOX 13127, Austin, Texas 78711.

Permit Approval: When TABC receives a completed application and fee payment, TABC will review the documents to ensure the applicant is eligible for the permit. Once approved, TABC will issue the applicant a Letter of Authority via email, allowing them to begin conducting the permitted activities (permittees will receive a paper permit in the mail soon thereafter).

Who May Apply: Holders of a Package Store Permit, Wine Only Package Store Permit, Wine and Beer Retailer’s Permit, Wine and Beer Retailer’s Off-Premise Permit, Mixed Beverage Permit with a Food and Beverage Certificate, Retail Dealer’s On-Premise License, Retail Dealer’s Off-Premise License, or a business that contracts with or employs individuals to deliver retail goods to consumers (other than those in the manufacturing or wholesale tiers).

Note for MB Permit Holders: If you are a Mixed Beverage Permit holder that also has a Food and Beverage Certificate and want to begin alcohol deliveries now, check out this guidance.

Public Safety: TABC is developing training specific to alcohol delivery drivers. Until that is available, alcohol responsibility information can be found here.
