ABC Liquor License Denial or Revocation

This program is administered by the Department of Revenue pursuant to KRS 243.500(5) and is used to resolve outstanding tax liabilities owed by a taxpayer holding license(s) to sell alcoholic beverages. When the taxpayer has an unresolved tax liability, the Office of Alcoholic Beverage Control may deny requests for license application or renewal until the tax liability is satisfied.

Before a taxpayer is able to transfer or sell a "liquor" license, the Department of Revenue must issue a tax clearance must be submitted to the Office of Alcoholic Beverage Control indicating that the taxpayer has no outstanding tax liability. The Office of Alcoholic Beverage Control may deny a taxpayer's request to sell or transfer their license until the tax liability is satisfied.

Mine License Denial or Revocation

Pursuant to KRS 131.181, the Department of Revenue has the authority to request the revocation of a taxpayer's mine license, after determining that the taxpayer holding that mine license owes a tax liability arising directly or indirectly from the mining, transportation, and/or processing of coal.

When a taxpayer's mine license is revoked, a representative from the Office of Mine Safety and Licensing personally visits the mine site(s) and "tags" the mine as closed until such time as the taxpayer makes satisfactory payment arrangements with the Department of Revenue.

The Department of Revenue may also request that the Office of Mine Safety and Licensing deny a taxpayer's initial request for a mine license, or its renewal, when the taxpayer owes a tax liability. When a mine license application is denied, the taxpayer is not issued the license and is unable to operate until satisfactory payment arrangements are made with the Department of Revenue.​
