Assistance for Industry Members Impacted by Recent Storms and Related Events
TTB recognizes that the devastation caused by recent storms, flooding, and other related events in California, may have affected industry members' operations. As a result, they may not be able to timely file excise tax returns or timely pay or deposit the excise taxes administered by TTB, as required by the Internal Revenue Code. TTB will consider waiving late filing, payment, or deposit penalties on a case-by case basis. Waivers will be approved based on the statutory standard of reasonable cause and a lack of willful neglect.
To qualify for a waiver, industry members must contact the TTB National Revenue Center and be able to demonstrate that the storms or related events directly affected their ability to timely file tax returns and/or pay or deposit excise taxes.
