This special edition announces that the temporary reduced tax rates and tax credits made available by the Craft Beverage Modernization Act (CBMA) provisions of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 are now permanent.

On December 27, 2020, the President signed the Taxpayer Certainty and Disaster Tax Act of 2020 (Division EE of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021), which made permanent most CBMA provisions of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017.

The temporary CBMA provisions that are now permanent include:

New provisions include:

  • Restrictions on the transfer of bottled distilled spirits in bond
  • Changes to the type of processing activities that qualify for reduced tax rates for distilled spirits
  • Changes to the Single Taxpayer provisions

Updates to Guidance

We will issue updated guidance in the near future.  In the meantime, if you have questions about CBMA, please contact us.
