WITHDRAWAL OF LIQUORS FOR USE ON AIRCRAFT; RECIPROCATING COUNTRIES

Proprietors of distilled spirits plants, bonded wine cellars, breweries, export storage, and others concerned:

Purpose. This circular is issued to inform you of the provisions of a revenue procedure which will be published in an early issue of the Internal Revenue Bulletin. The revenue procedure will announce the addition of Portugal to the list of foreign countries to which the reciprocal privileges provided by section 309 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, may be extended.

Background. Under the provisions of the above-cited section of the Tariff Act, the privilege of withdrawing liquors free of tax or with benefit of drawback, for use as supplies (including equipment), maintenance, or repair, of aircraft registered in a foreign country is extended to aircraft registered in a foreign country only if the Secretary of the Treasury is advised by the Secretary of Commerce that such foreign country allows, or will allow, substantially reciprocal privileges to aircraft registered in the United States. The Secretary of Commerce has advised the Secretary of the Treasury that, except for ground equipment, Portugal extends such privileges to aircraft registered in the United States and engaged in foreign trade. Corresponding privileges are, therefore, extended to aircraft registered in Portugal and engaged in foreign trade.

Complete List of Foreign Countries. The complete list of foreign countries to which the privileges provided for by section 309 of the Tariff Act of 1930 may be extended is now as follows:

Argentina Costa Rica Germany, Federal Netherlands Sweden
Australia Denmark Republic of Nicaragua Switzerland
Bahama Islands Dominican Republic India Norway Trinidad and
Belgium Ecuador Israel Pakistan Tobago
