Two-hour system timeout

For security reasons, Permits Online has a two - hour timeout whether you are active or inactive.

What this means is two hours after you log in to Permits Online:

  • you will be automatically logged out
  • your work will not be automatically saved, and
  • you will lose any information you have not previously saved 

To avoid losing your work we recommend that you use the "Save and Resume Later" buttons to save your work often.


Go back to the Permits Online Help Center



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 with Permits Online see our TTB Online Help Center.
