IN THIS ISSUE

Greetings! This week’s top news includes an invitation to help us improve the beverage formula section of our website, registration information about our webinar next week on malt beverage formulas, and information about two offers in compromise we recently accepted for alleged excise tax violations.

HELP US IMPROVE THE FORMULA GUIDANCE ON TTB.GOV

We invite you to participate in a simple activity that will help us determine the best way to organize the information we provide on alcohol beverage formulas so you can find it more easily on TTB.gov.

  • What would I do? In this activity, you will see a picture of our draft beverage formula guidance page, and we will ask you where you would expect to find certain information on that page.  There are no right or wrong answers!  We just want to know where people expect to find certain information so we can organize accordingly.
  • Who should participate? Anyone who files (or soon plans to file) beverage formula applications.  We are interested in getting feedback from all kinds of formula filers—wineries, distilleries, breweries, importers; micro businesses to international conglomerates.
  • How long will it take? About 10 minutes.

CLICK HERE TO GET STARTED!

Thanks in advance for your help.
