Reports for Manufacturers and Export Warehouse Proprietors
To: All Manufacturers
of Tobacco Products, Manufacturers of Cigarette Papers and Tubes,
and Proprietors of Export Warehouses
2002, we sent tobacco manufacturers a new edition of ATF Form 5210.5,
Report - Manufacturer of Tobacco Products or Cigarette Papers and
Tubes (1-2003 edition). We also sent export warehouse proprietors
a revised edition of ATF Form 5220.4, Report - Proprietor of Export
forms were distributed, we noted a few discrepancies that needed
to be corrected as soon as possible. While making the corrections,
we also made some minor modifications to the section that requires
the completion of certain identification information of proprietors
submitting the reports. For example, you will now need to include
your permit address to facilitate contacting you. We also corrected
a few references to the instructions. In addition, because of the
recent division of ATF, these new forms are Alcohol and Tobacco
Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) forms.
Please use the
3-2003 editions of these TTB forms immediately to report your operations.
If you already have submitted a report on the 1-2003 edition, you
do not need to resubmit your report on the 3-2003 edition.
1-2003 editions of the report forms that we previously sent. The
edition number can be found next to the form number in the form's
lower left hand corner. To obtain more of the 3-2003 editions of
the report forms, visit us on our web site at http://www.ttb.gov or contact the ATF Distribution Center, P.O. Box 5950, Springfield,
