IN THIS ISSUE

Greetings! This week’s top news includes a proposal to establish the Verde Valley AVA, a reminder that you still have time to take our survey and share your thoughts on service improvements we’re considering, reminders about filing your tax returns and operational reports on time, and two paid internships currently available in TTB Headquarters.

VERDE VALLEY AVA PROPOSED

We are accepting comments through April 28, 2020, on Notice No. 187, Proposed Establishment of the Verde Valley Viticultural Area, which was published in the Federal Register on Friday, February 28, 2020.  The proposed 200 square-mile Verde Valley American viticultural area (AVA) is located in Yavapai County, Arizona, and it is not located within, nor does it contain, any other established viticultural area.

We are making this proposal in response to a petition filed by the Verde Valley Wine Consortium, which represents local grape growers and winemakers.  We designate viticultural areas to allow vintners to better describe the origin of their wines and to allow consumers to better identify wines they may purchase.

You may submit comments electronically on this proposal and view copies of the proposed rule, selected supporting materials, and any comments we receive about this proposal at Regulations.gov within Docket No. TTB-2020-0002. A link to that docket is posted at our Wine - Notices of Proposed Rulemaking page at TTB.gov under Notice No. 187. You also may view the proposed AVA’s boundaries using our AVA Map Explorer.

LAST CHANCE TO SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON PROPOSED IMPROVEMENTS TO TTB SERVICES

Our survey will be closing soon, but there is still time to contribute your thoughts on which proposed projects would most increase your satisfaction with TTB services and help us focus our work.

Rounded Rectangle: Take the Survey

If you are a member of the alcohol beverage community who is responsible for preparing TTB applications, tax returns, and/or operational reports, please take our short survey and share your thoughts on some service improvements we are considering.

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT TIMELY PAYING TAXES AND FILING REPORTS

As a TTB-regulated industry member, you may be responsible for paying federal excise taxes and filing operational reports. Your obligations will depend on your circumstances and business type.

TWO PAID INTERNSHIP OPPORTUNITIES FOR STUDENTS

TTB is hiring two paid student interns for positions in TTB Headquarters located in Washington, DC. You have until March 17 to apply (unless we receive 200 applications before that).

We are hiring under the Pathways Internship Program, which combines a temporary opportunity to earn a competitive salary while learning about federal service. Interns gain valuable resume-building work experiences and career-networking relationships. If you're seeking a degree, possess outstanding communication skills and are looking for an opportunity to challenge your teambuilding skills, then this opportunity is for you.
