Renew a Liquor License

Most annual liquor licenses held within the city of Portland must be renewed both with the Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC) and with the City of Portland.

The renewal fee for the City of Portland is $35.00 per license. You may submit your City of Portland renewal fee online, in-person or by mail.

The City will not accept renewal payments submitted more than three months in advance of the license expiration date.

Late or Delinquent License Renewals

License renewal applications are mailed by the OLCC to licensees approximately two months before the licenses expire. The license applicant must return the completed application to the OLCC at least 20 days before the license expires to avoid late fees. Applicants cannot legally sell or serve alcohol after the license expires.

If the City of Portland does not receive the license renewal payment within 30 days of the OLCC Renewal District deadline, the licensee may incur late fees and the Oregon Liquor Control Commission will be notified that they are not in compliance with the City of Portland. The OLCC may place a hold on future renewals for licensees that fail to pay the City of Portland.
