The Liquor Code requires that licensees and applicants provide information demonstrating that they are in good standing relative to their state tax obligations.
The Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry and the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue issue tax clearances.
To accompany a new or a transfer application, PLCB-1898, Tax Certification Statement must be filed with the Board, which initiates a request to the Departments.
The Departments preaudit renewal and validation applications with the resulting “clear” or “not clear” status shown on the application.
Regardless of the type of application, when you are notified you do not have tax clearance, you must contact the respective department and obtain clearance.
Labor and Industry provides tax clearance by execution of “Tax Certification Statement for PLCB License” (UC Form 61), which must be sent or faxed to the Board.
Tax clearance from the Department of Revenue is reflected on-line, and only in an unusual situation is a hard copy clearance (form REV-1744) transmitted. The form used to initiate tax clearance may be obtained from the Board’s Licensing Information Center at (717) 783-8250, or by logging onto www.lcb.state.pa.us, clicking on “For Licensees”, then “PLCB Applications and Forms” and then choosing the appropriate form.
