1 answer

In the case of an individual or a partnership, each person must be 21 years of age or older and be: a citizen of the United States; a permanent resident alien; or a citizen of a country with a treaty allowing persons to obtain a visa to enter the United States to engage in trade.
In the case of a limited liability company or a corporation, the managing member of the limited liability company or the officers and directors of the corporation must each be 21 years of age or older and be: a citizen of the United States; a permanent resident alien; or a citizen of a country with a treaty allowing persons to obtain a visa to enter the United States to engage in trade.

In addition, a person is not eligible to hold a license if he/she is:

(a) a convicted felon (unless he/she has a Certificate of Relief from Civil Disabilities, has received a pardon, or has been issued a Certificate of Good Conduct). This includes a felony conviction in NYS and a conviction in another state or federal jurisdiction if the crime would be a felony in NYS.

(b) a police officer.

(c) a person whose license to sell alcoholic beverages was revoked within the last two years.
