Title: Usual and Customary Business Records Relating to Denatured Spirits—TTB REC 5150/1.

Abstract: Denatured spirits are used for nonbeverage industrial purposes in the manufacture of personal and household products. These records are maintained at the premises of the regulated individual and are routinely inspected by TTB personnel during field tax compliance examinations. These examinations are necessary to verify that all specially denatured spirits can be accounted for and are being used only for purposes authorized by laws and regulations. By ensuring that spirits have not been diverted to beverage use, tax revenue and public safety are protected. No additional recordkeeping is imposed on the respondent, as this information collection requires the maintenance only of the usual and customary business records of the regulated individual.

Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profit organizations; State, local, and tribal governments.

Estimated Annual Burden Hours: 1.

Section 5731 of the IRC (26 U.S.C. 5731) requires persons to register and/or pay a special occupational tax before conducting business in certain tobacco categories. TTB F 5630.5R is used both to compute and report the tax and as an application for registry as required by statute. TTB F 5630.5R is computer-generated by TTB with known taxpayer identifying information (e.g., name, trade name, address, employer identification number, etc.) along with tax computations reflecting tax class(es), number of business locations, tax rate(s), and total tax due.
