Connecticut DCP News: Liquor Permit Cancellation Process Update

April 5, 2022

From the Office of M. Caitlin S. Anderson

Liquor Control Division Director

For Immediate Release

Re: Liquor Permit Cancellation Process

The Department of Consumer Protection Liquor Control Division has a new online process for cancelling liquor permits.

You can now cancel online through your current e-License credential account. Cancelling online will immediately inactivate your permit.  Emailed, mailed, or faxed cancellation requests will no longer be accepted.

Steps to complete the cancellation process:

  1. Go to
  2. Log into your active credential’s account with your existing user ID and password. (You must use the credential given to you when your permit was issued; do not create a new user ID.)
  3. Once logged in, scroll down to “More Online Services,” then click “License Maintenance.”
  4. Select the credential you wish to Cancel and click “Start.”
  5. From the drop-down menu, select “Cancel my Permit” and complete the submittal process.
  6. Once the cancellation request is submitted properly, you will receive an immediate email from the Department acknowledging the cancellation. Upon receipt of the email, your cancellation is complete, and your permit is inactive.

Once you cancel your permit, it cannot be reversed and you will not receive any refunds for fees already paid. This online option is available only for final permits and cannot be used to cancel provisional permits or withdraw an application.

If you have any questions on this new process, please contact the Liquor Control Division by email:
