DISASTER CLAIMS – DAMAGE DUE TO EXCESSIVE RAIN AND FLOODING IN THE SOUTHEAST U.S.
Under various circumstances, including when the President has declared a major disaster, alcohol and tobacco businesses (retailers, wholesalers, importers, export warehouse proprietors, and manufacturers of beverage alcohol and tobacco products) may file claims with TTB for the payment (refund or allowance of credit) of Federal excise taxes paid on beverage alcohol or tobacco products lost, rendered unmarketable, or condemned by a duly authorized official. Additionally, TTB may consider waiving late filing, payment, or deposit penalties if the storms directly affected your ability to timely file, pay, or deposit.
Visit When Disaster Strikes at TTB.gov/ for more information about claims, including conditions and filing information.
