Required Documents – What to Gather Before You Apply

Before starting your application for a TTB permit, registration, or notice, you should gather the documentation that we require you to upload in Permits Online with your application package.  Your business structure and the kind of permit, registration, or notice you are applying for determines what documents you need to submit.

Use this tool to see a list of the documents you'll be required to upload.  Select the type of application you're submitting and then select the “View List” button.



Permits Online makes it easy for you to electronically apply for and update the permit, registration, or notice you need to operate a TTB-regulated business. Once you have registered to use Permits Online, just log in and follow the instructions and prompts for submitting your application package. There is no fee to apply.


For more information on the permit application process, contact the TTB National Revenue Center (NRC) toll-free at 877-882-3277 / 877-TTB-FAQS or submit an online inquiry. For technical assistance about Permits Online see our TTB Online Help Center.
