Liquor license fees are collected by both State and County agencies. The fees vary depending on the type of license for which you are applying. Two separate checks are required - one made payable to the Colorado Department of Revenue and the other payable to the Larimer County Clerk. Both administrative fees and license fees are due when applying for a new establishment or a transfer of ownership; however, only license fees are due at renewal time.

Fingerprinting & Background Investigations

All persons with at least 10% ownership interest in the business applying for a liquor license and any manager that is not an owner are required to be fingerprinted and are subject to a criminal background check.

Effective September 24, 2018, the Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) will implement the Colorado Applicant Background Services (CABS) program in response to Senate Bill 17-189.  This means the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office will no longer be able to provide fingerprint card services for civilians needing them for employment and/or background checks.  Once the CABS program is implemented, CBI will no longer accept physical/paper fingerprint card submissions as previously provided by LCSO.

CBI has awarded two contracts allowing third party vendors to electronically print and submit non-criminal applicant fingerprints for the State.  Currently, IdentoGO is the only vendor in Larimer County authorized by CBI.  IdentoGO is located at 115 East Harmony Road Suite 210 in Fort Collins.  Schedule an appointment with IndentoGO for the Local (City/County) Liquor Licensure fingerprinting.  The fee of $39.50 will be collected by IndentoGO for fingerprinting.

Background checks are conducted by the Colorado Bureau of Investigation.

Please submit completed fingerprint cards with your application packet, as well as a certified check, money order or business check made payable to the Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in the amount of $38.50 per person.
