Permits Online: How to Upload Documents

Note: This page contains instructions and screenshots so you can see what to expect when using Permits Online, our online method of applying for a TTB permit, registration, or notice.

Based on the type of application or request that you are filing in Permits Online, you are you are required to provide copies of certain documents in support of your submission.

When applying for a new permit, registration, or notice we recommend that you review the list of required documents and gather them before you start your application.

Step-by-Step: How to upload documents

When you are submitting either an entity or commodity operations application (i.e., for a permit, registration, or notice) Permits Online will build a list of documents you are required to upload, based on how you've answered questions throughout the application.

You will not be able to proceed to the next step until you have uploaded each of the documents in your required document checklist.

The place where you upload the documents appears below your required document checklist in the "Attachment List" section.

After you have browsed to locate the document you wish to upload, select the type of document from the "Type" field, and add a description of the document in the "Description" field.
