Action Needed: Update Key Contact Information to Prepare for CBMA Import Claims

March 1, 2023 │Office of Communications



TTB is preparing for the release of a new CBMA importer refund claims system through which importers will submit claims online to take advantage of reduced tax rates or credits of the Crafts Beverage Modernization Act.  The CBMA importer refund claims system relies on information in TTB’s Permits Online system, particularly the Key Contact information for the business entity. 

This information must be accurate and up-to-date or you may experience delays in obtaining access to the CBMA importer refund claims system and, ultimately, your refund.  A Key Contact must be an officer or owner of the business entity and must be authorized to sign and act on behalf of the entity by name (not just by title).  We encourage you to verify or update your Key Contact information by March 17th, 2023 to avoid possible delays.

 What you need to do

There are step-by-step instructions on how complete this action on TTB.gov.  We recommend that you confirm your Key Contact information by March 17th, 2023 even if you think it is accurate. You can designate more than one Key Contact, and TTB encourages you to consider doing so.  The Key Contact(s) will be able to manage access to your company information in the myTTB system.
