Permits Online Tutorial

We are pleased to offer this online tutorial (TTB G 2014-2) to help make using Permits Online a quick and easy process. Permits Online is our free, secure electronic system that allows you to apply for the type of permit, notification, or notice you need to start your TTB-regulated business, or amend your existing approvals.

Permits Online already includes a number of integrated error-checking areas that can minimize many of the mistakes and possible questions that may pop up while filling out your application. Our online tutorial is the perfect supplement to the system, taking you step-by-step through the process of using Permits Online, from preparing and submitting your application to following the status of your application all the way to approval.

The tutorial branches into the different types of applications you may be submitting, too, and it outlines the mandatory documentation you will need, along with the documentation required by specific situations. We have even included screenshots of the Permits Online system, along with tips and some expanded explanations.
