Cash Law



Beer purchased from beer distributors (BB/BC/BD) or Manufacturer's License (BA) who also holds a Self-Distribution License (DB) are subject to cash law and must be paid for in cash (no credit), on or before delivery.


If you give a check in lieu of cash and it is dishonored, the seller of the beer is required by law to report any dishonored check to the TABC and the retailer's license will be placed on the statewide delinquent list until the local distributor notifies the TABC that the retailer has paid in full.


An action to cancel or suspend a license may be initiated for repeat violations of cash law.
