Currently, we are seeking comments on the following information collections:
Title: Distilled Spirits Bond.
OMB Number: 1513-XXXX (To be assigned).
TTB Form Number: 5110.56.
Abstract: This form is used by Distilled Spirits Plants (DSPs) and Alcohol Fuel Plants to file bond coverage with TTB. Using this form, these plants may file coverage and/or withdrawal coverage for one plant or multiple plants. DSPs may file this bond and include operations coverage for adjacent wine cellars. The bond may be secured through a surety company or it may be secured with collateral (cash, Treasury Bonds or Treasury Notes). The bond protects the revenue assigned to distilled spirits on which excise tax has not been paid. Should the industry member fail to pay its tax liability, including any penalties and interest, TTB may obligate the funds used to secure the bond to satisfy the debt.
Current Actions: There are changes to this information collection and it is being submitted for approval.
