**Note for Retailers, Distributors, & Wholesalers Regarding Credit Law Issues**
As a result of the storms, TABC recognizes that many retailers may not be able to make timely payments to their distributor(s)/wholesaler(s), which affects the reliability of credit law reports. Additionally, this may prevent distributors/wholesalers from timely filing their credit law reports.
To accommodate these potential problems, TABC urges distributors/wholesalers in the declared disaster area to not solely rely on Delinquent Lists #1784 & #1785. Additionally, TABC will not penalize distributors/wholesalers in the declared disaster area for failing to timely file their credit law reports for delivery periods October 1-15 and October 16-31.
TABC also suggests that distributors/wholesalers exercise discretion in deciding whether to extend credit or COD terms for liquor purchases during this period. Normal reporting requirements and expectations will resume with the November 1-15 delivery period and Delinquent List #1786.
