Coping with a TTB Audit


Marc Sorini was author of this bylined article on how distillers can handle audits by the federal Alcohol & Tobacco Tax & Trade Bureau (TTB), which collects the federal excise tax on spirits. “A TTB audit need not be a catastrophic ordeal,” Mr. Sorini wrote. “The best way to cope with an audit is to operate your distillery in compliance with TTB requirements … Understanding the process can help distillers put their best foot forward and avoid unnecessary fretting about what is, in the end, an inevitable part of the highly regulated distilling business.”
