APPLICATION REMINDERS:

There shall be a fee of $40.00 for each day identified in the Special Designated License Application, unless the applicant is the holder of a liquor catering license (K).

Non profit organizations are allowed twelve (12) calendar dates per year (January - December).  Retail liquor license holders are allowed six (6) calendar dates per year (January - December).  Retail liquor license holders that hold a catering license are allowed unlimited.  However, there is a limit of twelve SDL license dates that can be obtained per location each calendar year.  This count includes all SDL licenses issued by all applicants to the location.  

Only six consecutive dates can be entered on one application as well as approved on Form 200.

​Alternate dates and locations must be approved on Form 200.

There are no refunds for late, rejected or canceled applications.  Application fees cannot be transferred to rescheduled events.

SDL Applications will only be accepted via the on-line portal.

The issued license is emailed to the local governing body.  Please contact them to arrange pick up.  The license must be displayed at the event.


NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATIONS ONLY - NEW OPTION AVAILABLE:

SPECIAL DESIGNATED LICENSE EVENTS FOR SIX (6) NON-CONSECUTIVE DATES AT ONE LOCATION - NO PORTAL ENTRY FOR THIS OPTION 

A new option is available for applicants of non-profit organizations that do not hold a permanent license.

It is now acceptable for qualified non-profit applicants to file up to six non-consecutive dates on one application. This is only acceptable if the event is held at the same location. The payment for the first date remains the same at $40.00, however the 2nd through the 6th date will be $10.00 per day. 

Since our current SDL portal does not allow for this type of payment and use of non-consecutive dates, our office will need to manually enter the application using the same forms.  Please contact Shelly Bales or Victoria Trevino if this is an option for your organization.  We will discuss how payment will be made and other documents needed for our office to enter and process your application.  There will be no refunds for applications that are entered on the portal by the applicant.

SDL Farmer's Market Endorsement

The Special Designated License Farmers Market Endorsement Application allows a Craft Brewery, Micro Distillery, or a Farm Winery to attend one Farmer's Market at the same location with one issued SDL that covers the entire retail license year.   The licensee will only be allowed to serve the type of alcohol produced by the applying license.  Licensees that hold more than one license will need to apply for another license if they wish to sell other produced product.

The applicant is responsible for contacting the local governing body to apply for the City/County permit along with payment of any occupational taxes and fees.  The license issued by the NLCC is not valid without this permit.  The local governing body will notify the NLCC office within five days of this permit being issued.

Form #202 is required by the NLCC office.  There is no portal application.  This license will be generated upon approval by the NLCC and emailed to the applicant and local governing body.

The SDL endorsement fee of $15.00 will need to be renewed for each Special Designated License Farmer's Market Endorsement before the expiration date.
