Virginia Announces Fee Increases for Wine and Beer Licenses
June 18, 2018
By Midori Feldman, Research Specialist
For all licenses, effective July 1, 2018 and beyond, the Virginia ABC has raised direct ship wine and beer license application fees from $65 to $195. The tax for all wine and beer shipper licenses are increased from $95 to $230. Licensees that already paid the old rates will receive notices from the Virginia ABC to pay the difference. These changes reflect the actual costs that surround the issuance and enforcement efforts of the Virginia ABC. Licensees may also receive notices that their license renewal dates have been changed. This helps the Virginia ABC process a similar number of licenses each month.
