What is the Clerk’s Affidavit and the warning sign relating to underage sales and purchases?
The law requires all persons who sell alcoholic beverages in off-sale licensed premises to read, understand and sign a summary of certain alcohol laws. The document is known as a Clerk's Affidavit. The law also requires off-sale licensees to post a sign in their stores warning customers about the laws relating to underage sales and purchases and their penalties. ABC provides a suggested format for the Clerk's Affidavit and the sign in its Form ABC-299 entitled, Clerk's Affidavit and Sign, available from any ABC District Office. (Section 25658.4)
