Additional Liquor-Licensed Drugstores (DR8001) - The LED will not accept an application for an additional liquor-licensed drugstore until January 1, 2017. A local licensing authority may decide to accept an application for an additional liquor-licensed drugstore prior to January 1, 2017. There is no reduced rate for the State Application fee for applications submitted to the local licensing authority prior to January 1, 2017 and all fees must be paid to the state. The LED will only accept an application for an additional liquor-licensed drugstore using the new form (DR8001).

Wholesaler Affidavit of Compliance (DR8004) - this form is now available and any transfer of a retail liquor license after January 1, 2017 must follow regulation 47-305, 1 C.C.R. 20-3-2 (effective January 1, 2017), which mandates the use of this form.

Retail Liquor License Application (DR8404) - The LED will only accept an application for an additional retail liquor store license using the updated form (DR8404) along with the new fees effective January 1, 2017. For all other new liquor license applications, the amount of the state fee is dependent on the date the local licensing authority receives the application. In order to be eligible for the lower fee in 2016, the local licensing authority must have a date stamp on the application that is prior to January 1, 2017. If no date stamp is found on the application the new fees that are effective January 1, 2017 will be due to the State.
