The extension applies to approximately 19,000 establishments that sell alcohol and will allow them to delay renewing their licenses by three months. The extension means licensees will be required to renew their 2021 licenses by July 30 instead of the original April 30 deadline.

“Our bar and restaurant owners have made incredible sacrifices during this pandemic and they should not have the additional stress about renewing their liquor license by April 30 this year,” Governor Whitmer said in a press release. “We want to ease the burden by extending the customary deadline so they can focus on getting back to business. My administration has also secured crucial support for these businesses through a bipartisan supplemental budget that I signed to provide greater financial relief for small business owners in our hospitality industry.”

The release goes on to say that licensees are strongly encouraged to renew their licenses online.

“This extension will allow staff from the MLCC Licensing Division to work with those licensees who need the extra time to renew,” said Orlene Hawks, director of the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) where the MLCC is housed. “Those who still wish to renew immediately will have the opportunity to do so, but this new deadline will also give our licensees the flexibility to wait a few months to renew their license.”
