TTB ACCEPTS OFFER IN COMPROMISE FOR ALLEGED FAA ACT VIOLATIONS

We recently accepted a $15,000 Offer in Compromise from Ancient Peak, Inc., a bonded winery located in Santa Margarita, California, to resolve alleged violations of the Federal Alcohol Administration Act. This Offer in Compromise is the result of a TTB investigation that revealed that Ancient Peak, Inc. allegedly sold wine in interstate commerce without obtaining certificates of label approval as required by law. In addition, the labels allegedly contained false and untrue statements.

To view the "Abstract and Statement" and to learn more about our civil enforcement actions, please visit our Field Operations Administrative Cases page.

TTB PUBLISHES 2015 SYSTEM OF RECORDS NOTICE

We have completed a review of our system of records notice (SORN) and published a revised SORN in the Federal Register of January 28, 2015. This notice covers "Treasury/TTB .001–Regulatory Enforcement Record System," which is the only system of records adopted by TTB as of October 1, 2014.

The 2015 SORN updates the status of our Record Control Schedules with the National Archives and Records Administration, and makes other minor editorial changes to our previous SORN, published on December 1, 2011.
