IN THIS ISSUE

Greetings! We’d like to wish all of our readers a very Happy Thanksgiving. This week’s top news includes the semi-annual publication of our regulatory priorities, the window is closing on making voluntary disclosures of unreported changes in control or proprietorship through Industry Circular 2019-2, and we recently accepted an offer in compromise from a California wine company.

SEMIANNUAL UNIFIED REGULATORY AGENDA NOW AVAILABLE

Want to know what regulatory projects we have planned? Each spring and fall, the General Services Administration’s Regulatory Information Service Center compiles and releases the semiannual “Unified Agenda of Federal Regulatory and Deregulatory Actions,” which outlines the planned regulatory actions of all Federal entities that currently have regulations under development or review.

The Fall 2019 edition of the Unified Agenda is now available on the Unified Agenda webpage. To view information for the Department of the Treasury, including information on all planned TTB regulatory and deregulatory actions, select “Department of the Treasury” in the drop-down menu for the Select Agency search box at the bottom of that page.

TIME IS RUNNING OUT TO MAKE VOLUNTARY DISCLOSURES OF UNREPORTED CHANGES IN CONTROL OR PROPRIETORSHIP THROUGH INDUSTRY CIRCULAR 2019-2

Through December 31, 2019, TTB is offering a temporary voluntary disclosure program (see Industry Circular 2019 - 2) to address wholesalers and importers of alcohol beverages who have undergone a change in control (a change in who controls a business) or change in proprietorship (a change in the person or entity that owns a business) but failed to file a new permit application within 30 days of the change, as required by law.

This temporary program provides a streamlined approach that allows eligible wholesalers and importers to simultaneously voluntarily disclose the unreported changes in control or proprietorship and file an application for a new permit while benefiting from the enforcement discretion described in section 6 of Industry Circular 2019 - 2.

Time is running out, so we encourage you to take advantage of this program while you still can.
