I received paper work for a hearing to revoke my business license. Do I have to attend to the hearing even though I don’t want my business license no more? Or what can be the consequence if I don’t attend?

If you don't attend the hearing, the judge will most likely rule against you and your business license will be revoked.
There is a possibility that you could be charged with failure to appear and a bench warrant could be issued for your arrest.
