IN THIS ISSUE

Greetings! We hope you had a steadfast and valiant week! This week's top stories include a reminder to paper filers to always use the most recent version of TTB forms, announcements about a planned outage of our customer support phone lines and a recent information collection notice, as well as a list of the past week's top Pay.gov/ pages at TTB.gov/.

IMPORTANT TIP: ALWAYS USE THE MOST RECENT VERSION OF TTB FORMS

If you file hard copies of any TTB forms, please make sure you always use the current version of the form, which you can find on the TTB Forms page at TTB.gov/. We may return any form not submitted on a current approved form, which may delay processing.

How can you tell at a glance if you are using the current version? In the bottom left corner of all TTB forms, you'll find the form number as well as a date.  The form number and date must match the current version posted on the TTB Forms page. If they don't match, then discard the old version and print or download the current form. 

IMPORTANT TIP: ALWAYS USE THE MOST RECENT VERSION OF TTB FORMS

We encourage you to check the TTB Forms page frequently to check for updated versions of TTB forms. You can bookmark the pages of your most frequently used forms so that you always have the latest version.

This information applies to paper versions of forms only, not to electronic versions of forms filed online through Permits Online, COLAs Online, Formulas Online, or Pay.gov/.
