FAQs: Licensing Fees
Q:  Does the licensing fee have to be paid no matter what?
A:  The licensing fee is only due upon approval of the application.  If the application is approved, it is the applicant’s business decision to move forward and pay the applicable fee. Until the application fee is paid, the application is considered approved but incomplete. No licensed activity can take place until the time of payment.

Q:  How are fees re-examined on the need for the OLCC to “break even” on costs?
A:   They will be adjusted based on the actuals costs of administering the program.
Q:  Will there be a cap on the license fees?
A:  OLCC is currently authorized only to collect fees necessary to recover the costs of administering the program.
Q:  What does the charge show on my bank account when paying for the fees?
A:  It shows as application of license fee. 
Q:  Can you take cash payments for fees?
A:  The OLCC accepts electronic payments only for the application fee. OLCC may be able to accept cash payments for the license fee.  However this will require an appointment and may take time to arrange, resulting in the delay of license acceptance. The online system accepts most major credit cards. Cash cards are available in large denominations at many local retail outlets across the State and may be used to streamline your e-government service experience with the OLCC.
Q:  Once approved for a license, how long do we have to pay the license fee?
A:  There is currently no set timeframe as to when a license fee is due.
Q:  Are the fees the same if I transitioning from the medical marijuana program?
A:  Yes the fees are the same if transitioning from the OHA’s medical program to the OLCC program.
Q:  Is there a separate fee for the LUCS?
A:  The local jurisdiction processing the LUCS may have an applicable fee which it charges.  The fee is paid directly to the local government.
