New TTB Guidance on Reduced Excise Tax Rates

The Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) has posted further information of interest to brewers as part of the continuing effort to provide guidance concerning reduced excise tax rates. The new information concerns how the rates apply to production at multiple breweries under the same ownership and multiple breweries that are part of a controlled group. The three new FAQ’s can be found in the Beer Tax Reform Questions and Answers section of TTB’s Craft Beverage Modernization and Tax Reform page.
