The Alcoholic Beverage Retail Licensee Clearance Certificates (Renewal) for 2015-2016 have been updated.  Municipal Clerks can view licenses that have been cleared, in the GovConnect Links section of this website.  Be aware, that you must have a renewal clearance in order to pass your resolution for the 2015-2016 year.  Should a licensee not have clearance, IMMEDIATLY contact the licensee and advise them you have not received their renewal clearance.  Please advise them they can: a) Contact the caseworker they are currently corresponding with at the New Jersey Division of Taxation or b) If they are not corresponding with a caseworker, tell them to contact the closest field office and speak to a "Field Investigator": Neptune (732)869-8057, Camden (856)614-2628, Fair Lawn (201)791-1010, Newark (973)648-4700, Somerville (908)704-3070, Northfield (609)645-6687, Quakerbridge (609)588-3934.  Statuses will not be discussed with the Clerk.  If a licensee has transferred their license after December 31, 2014 and you have BOTH a Renewal Clearance in the name of the prior licensee AND an Alcoholic Beverage Retail Licensee Clearance Certificate (Transfer) to the current licensee in your possession, they are in compliance and can be renewed.  Should an active licensee obtain a renewal clearance and the final meeting before September 18, 2015 has passed, they must obtain an ad-interim to get them to the next meeting in order to continue to sell alcohol.
