Resolving a Tax Hold
on a California Liquor License

A tax hold on a California liquor license should be taken very seriously. A liquor license encumbered by a tax hold could be suspended until all taxes are paid. In addition, the license could be seized.

When transferring a liquor license with a tax hold, the taxes must be made current. Negotiating this process effectively is very important for a successful transaction and satisfaction of not only the parties involved, but the taxing agency as well. ABC Service has a great deal of experience with this type of situation and can assist you to solve it.
