TTB’s CBMA Importer Claims System is Now Available

April 3, 2023│Office of Communications



Importers seeking refunds based on Craft Beverage Modernization Act (CBMA) tax benefits assigned to them by foreign producers may now access the CBMA Importer Claims System available in myTTB.  Importers may file claims for refunds based on entries made during the first calendar quarter of 2023. 

TTB has published a user guide that provides step-by-step instructions for submitting claims in the myTTB CBMA Importer Claims System through the regular claims submission process. The user guide is available on the CBMA Imports page on TTB.gov.  TTB has also published an alternate procedure and accompanying user guide for submitting claims in limited circumstances in which the regular claims process cannot be used.

To access the myTTB CBMA Importer Claims system, importers must first create their myTTB account, activate their entity in myTTB, and authorize users to prepare and submit claims.  Instructions on how to do so are available here.

For additional information about CBMA importer refund claims, please visit TTB.gov.
