IN THIS ISSUE

Greetings! This week's top news includes announcements about our 2018 TTB Satisfaction Survey, a new industry circular about how to request permission to store tax-determined and non-tax-determined wine, beer, and spirits in ways that vary from the regulations, and a Pay.gov outage this Saturday.

TTB'S 2018 SATISFACTION SURVEY IS NOW OPEN!

We want to hear from you, our important stakeholders!

Starting today, emails are going out inviting a sample of our stakeholders to participate in the 2018 TTB Customer Satisfaction Survey. If you receive the invitation, please go ahead and take the survey—it's hosted by SurveyMonkey® and is available through June 30, 2018 or until our maximum allowable number of responses is reached.

Your feedback plays an important role in helping us understand your concerns, so we can shape our procedures and policies to better meet your needs.

Your responses are anonymous, and it shouldn't take you more than 15 minutes to complete the survey. We look forward to hearing from you!

TTB INDUSTRY CIRCULAR 2018-3: ALTERNATE PROCEDURE REGARDING STORAGE OF TAX-DETERMINED AND NON-TAX-DETERMINED PRODUCTS

On May 30, 2018, we issued TTB Industry Circular 2018-3, which advises proprietors of distilled spirits plants, bonded wine cellars, and breweries that they may submit requests for approval of an alternate method or procedure if they wish to "alternate" their premises to store tax-determined and non-tax-determined products in ways that vary from existing regulations.

For additional details, read Industry Circular 2018-3, Alternation of Premises for Storage of Tax-Determined and Non-Tax Determined Distilled Spirits, Wine, and Beer.

PAY.GOV OUTAGE ON JUNE 2, 2018

Pay.gov will be unavailable starting at 6 p.m. ET on Saturday, June 2, 2018, for approximately 3 hours to accommodate an important disaster recovery exercise hosted by Pay.gov.

Tax Payments, Returns and Operational Reports

If you use Pay.gov to submit TTB tax payments, returns, or operational reports, you will not be able to submit them during this time frame.

Cash Bond Payments

Also, TTB will be unable to accept electronic cash bond payments through Permits Online during this time. If you attempt to submit a cash bond payment via Pay.gov, you will be notified to complete and submit after this exercise. You may submit Permits Online applications without cash bond payments normally during this exercise.
