IN THIS ISSUE

Greetings! This week's top news includes the posting of new TTB training presentations on cider and alcohol beverage formulas, the availability of new Craft Beverage Modernization and Tax Reform guidance, and a recent offer-in-compromise accepted on a TTB field case.

CIDER AND FORMULA PPT PRESENTATIONS POSTED ON TTB.GOV

TTB participates in industry conferences and seminars to provide training or relevant TTB-related information. We also hold our own training events, such as webinars or seminars. We  share our presentations on our TTB Presentations Web page for everyone's benefit.

We recently added the presentations we used for the Cider Compliance Seminar at  CiderCON 2018, and for TTB-hosted webinars on domestic formula requirements for malt beverages, distilled spirits, and wine.

Bookmark the TTB Presentations page and use it as a resource when you've got questions about TTB requirements on a variety of topics.

ADDITIONAL CRAFT BEVERAGE MODERNIZATION AND TAX REFORM GUIDANCE NOW AVAILABLE

This week, we updated our Craft Beverage Modernization and Tax Reform page with answers to the following two questions:

W6: May I label a wine containing 15 percent alcohol by volume as "table wine," now that the Act has raised the maximum alcohol by volume content for the lowest still wine tax rate from 14 percent alcohol by volume to 16 percent alcohol by volume?

G5: Since Federal excise tax rates are lower in calendar year 2018, for purposes of determining my eligibility to file quarterly or annual returns in 2018, can I recalculate my 2017 Federal excise tax liability based on the new lower rates?

You can sign up to receive email notification when we publish new guidance through GovDelivery.

TTB ACCEPTS OFFER IN COMPROMISE FROM BONDED WINERY

TTB has accepted an offer in compromise from Margerum Wine Company, Inc. of Buellton, California for allegedly failing to pay federal excise tax.
