Liquor Licenses

The Application Process

To apply for a liquor license in Missouri City, please follow these step-by-step-application instructions (PDF). Please note that you may not operate your business using another person's permit / license.

Additionally, under federal law, retail dealers must register with the Tax and Trade Bureau. Recent legislation has suspended the tax on retail and wholesale dealers, importers and manufacturers of beverage alcohol products beginning with the 2006 tax year that starts July 1, 2005. You will still be required to register by filling out the FORM TTB F5630.5 and reporting tax liability as zero. If you began business before July 1, 2005 you are still liable for the tax on a prorated basis.

See the Liquor Laws and Regulations for further information and form.
