Liquor License Renewals and Transfers


In most jurisdictions, including Baltimore City and the City of Annapolis, the Comptroller may request the Liquor Board to hold the renewal of a state liquor license until the account is current with its filing requirements and/or has made satisfactory payment arrangements. The Comptroller may hold renewals for failure to comply with the sales and use, employee withholding, and admissions and amusement tax requirements.


The Liquor Boards of the various jurisdictions report all liquor license transfer request to the Comptroller. The Comptroller will place a hold on the transfer of any license where the seller has not complied with the sales and use, employee withholding, and admissions and amusement tax requirements.
