Title: Marks on Wine Containers.
OMB Number: 1512-0503.
Recordkeeping Requirement ID Number: ATF REC 5120/3.
Abstract: ATF requires that wine on wine premises be identified by statements of information on labels or contained in marks. ATF uses this information to validate the receipts of excise tax revenue by the Federal Government. All of the required information is drawn from cost accounting records maintained to establish the price of each product. These records are maintained by manufacturers on all products even in the absence of marking requirements. Therefore, ATF does not impose any burden on the respondent. The record retention period is only required as long as the container is used for storing wine. There is no retention period beyond the time the wine is stored in the container.
Current Actions: There are no changes to this information collection and it is being submitted for extension purposes only.
Type of Review: Extension.
Affected Public: Business or other for-profit.
Estimated Number of Respondents: 1,560.
Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 1.
Request for Comments: Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized and/or included in the request for OMB approval. All comments will become a matter of public record. Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology; and (e) estimates of capital or start-up costs and costs of operation, maintenance, and purchase of services to provide information.Start Signature
