TTB INTRODUCES A MORE SECURE WEBSITE
In the continuing effort to improve the safety of our systems, we updated our website, www.ttb.gov, from the usual “http://” to the more secure “https://”. This change took place on Thursday, April 14, 2016.
What does this mean?
What do I need to do?
What if I still use “http” and not “https”?
We have the site configured so that you will be automatically forwarded to the new siteusing https. If this does not happen, please let us know by contacting TTB.HelpDesk@ttb.gov.
Read the TTB announcement for more details.

Operational Reports Tutorials
OPERATIONAL REPORTS MUST BE FILED ON TIME - KNOW YOUR DUE DATES
We did an analysis which showed that many industry members who are required to file operational reports do not file them on time in compliance with federal regulations. Failure to file required operational reports by the due date is a violation of the conditions of your permit and can lead to adverse action.
We’d like to take this opportunity to remind members of the wine, beer, distilled spirits, and tobacco industries who are subject to operational report filing requirements of the due dates for these reports:
FILING TIP: We have noticed that industry members who file their operational reports via Pay.gov have a better record of filing on time!
