Wednesday, May 07, 2014 10:39 PM

The 83rd Legislature raised appropriations for the TBCE to hire three additional staff members (two field investigators and one administrative assistant), but mandated that the agency raise fees to generate increased revenue.

At a Board meeting on November 21st, the Board voted to adopt the following fee increases:

  • $10 increase for initial DC applications

  • $10 increase for initial DC license (prorated)

  • $30 increase for inactive license processing

  • $5 increase for new facility applications

  • $35 increase for CE applications 

  • These increases are effective January 1st. Forms with the new fees are available on our website under the Forms/Downloads link.  The most current fees may be found here.


    Please note that the field investigator positions are NOT peace officer positions. The TBCE did not request peace officer or armed status for investigators.
