TTB Announces Extension of Beer Destruction Notification Waiver

Share Post

Following a request by the Brewers Association to extend the previously granted waiver of notice requirements (through July 1) associated with the destruction of unmerchantable tax-paid beer, the Tax and Trade Bureau has announced that the waiver will remain in effect through September 1, 2020. With levels of out-of-code beer in the marketplace expected to remain high through the summer months, the continued elimination of the twelve day waiting period prior to destruction should help expedite both the destruction process and the subsequent drawback claim on taxes already paid.
