All application fees shall be remitted to the division of liquor control when applications are filed. The pendency, priority, or validity of an application for a permit or duplicate permit received by the division shall not be affected because the division did not issue the permit applied for or the applicant failed to appeal to the liquor control commission.
The division, prior to the granting of a permit or duplicate permit applied for, shall notify, by certified mail, the applicant or the applicant's authorized agent . The applicant or the applicant's authorized agent, within thirty days after the mailing of that notice, shall pay to the division the entire amount of the requisite permit fee required by sections 4303.02 to 4303.231 or, in the case of a duplicate permit, section 4303.30 of the Revised Code, if the permit or duplicate permit is issued during the first six months of the year the permit or duplicate permit covers, or one-half of the amount of the requisite permit fee, if the permit or duplicate permit is issued during the last six months of the year the permit or duplicate permit covers. If the applicant fails to pay the applicable amount of that requisite permit fee within those thirty days, the division shall cancel the applicant's application.
All other fees shall be paid at the time and in the manner prescribed by the division. The liquor control commission may adopt rules requiring reports or returns for the purpose of determining the amounts of additional permit fees.
