IN THIS ISSUE

Greetings! We hope you had a happy and enjoyable Thanksgiving holiday. This week’s top news includes advice about how to avoid having your COLA application returned for translations of foreign text, and an offer in compromise accepted from Liberty Ammunition.

AVOIDING COMMON ERRORS ON COLA APPLICATIONS – PROVIDING TRANSLATIONS OF FOREIGN TEXT

One of the most common problems we see on applications for label approval (COLAs) that causes us to have to send them back for correction is that the label contains foreign text but the applicant didn’t supply a translation.

If a label contains foreign text, we must ensure that it’s not misleading or prohibited, and that it doesn’t conflict with mandatory label information. The most efficient way for our labeling specialist to evaluate foreign text is for the applicant to provide a translation.

  • If your label contains foreign text, save yourself time by proactively providing the translation when you submit the application.
  • Translations should either be entered or uploaded in step 3 of the online application.

OFFER IN COMPROMISE ACCEPTED FROM LIBERTY AMMUNITION

We accepted a $15,367 offer in compromise from Liberty Ammunition, Inc., a manufacturer of ammunition located in Bradenton, Florida. Liberty Ammunition allegedly failed to pay excise tax between October 2016 and June 2018.
