PERMITS ONLINE USER GUIDE AT TTB.gov/
Permits Online is our free, secure, web-based system that allows the public to apply for a permit, notification, or notice needed to start a TTB-regulated business, and for current industry members to amend existing approvals.
The Permits Online User Guide (201 pages, 14 MB) includes tips and useful information to help people navigate through the TTB business application process. Inside the guide you’ll find detailed information about applying for each type of permit, notification, or notice that TTB administers, as well as information about what to expect during the application process.
You asked and we listened!
One of the comments we heard frequently from people who use Permits Online was that they wished they could preview the information TTB requires from applicants before beginning the application process. The Permits Online User Guide has an entire section with pictures of the actual screens applicants will see, so they’ll have the chance to review the entire application before actually beginning the application process.

Finally, check out our TTB Business Central page for more information on starting and maintaining a new TTB-regulated business.
