SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB)

1. Title: Letterhead Applications and Notices Relating to Wine (TTB REC 5120/2).

OMB Control Number: 1513-0057.

Type of Review: Extension without change of a currently approved collection.

Description: Various provisions of chapter 51 of the Internal Revenue Code (IRC; 26 U.S.C. chapter 51) govern or authorize the Secretary to issue regulations regarding certain aspects of wine production and treatment. The IRC also imposes standards for natural and agricultural wines, the cellar treatment of natural wine, and the labeling of all wines. Under those IRC authorities, the TTB regulations in 27 CFR part 24 require wine premises proprietors to submit letterhead applications or notices to TTB when they desire to use alternate regulatory compliance methods or procedures or when they desire to undertake certain specified wine premises operations, particularly those that affect the kind, tax rate, or volume of wine produced or removed. In general, operations posing a greater jeopardy to the revenue require submission of letterhead applications subject to TTB approval, while operations posing less jeopardy to the revenue require submission of letterhead notices that do not require TTB pre-approval. This information collection is necessary to ensure that proposed wine-related alternative methods or procedures or operations comply with relevant laws and regulations, and do not jeopardize the revenue or unduly burden TTB's administration of 27 CFR part 24.

Form: None.

Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profits.

Estimated Number of Respondents: 1,650.

Frequency of Response: On occasion.

Estimated Total Number of Annual Responses: 1,650.

Estimated Time per Response: 30 minutes.

Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 825.

2. Title: Airlines Withdrawing Stock from Customs Custody (TTB REC 5620/2).

OMB Control Number: 1513-0074.

Type of Review: Extension without change of a currently approved collection.

Description: Under provisions of the Internal Revenue Code (IRC) in 26 U.S.C. chapter 51, distilled spirits and wine produced in or imported into the United States are subject to Federal excise tax. However, under the IRC at 26 U.S.C. 5214 and 5362, and subject to such regulations as the Secretary may prescribe, distilled spirits and wine may be removed without payment of that tax for use on certain aircraft. In addition, under 19 U.S.C. 1309, and subject to such regulations as the Secretary may prescribe, distilled spirits and wine may be withdrawn from customs custody without payment of that tax for use as supplies on aircraft engaged in flights to locations outside the United States. Under those authorities, the TTB regulations require airlines to account for distilled spirits and wine withdrawn from their stocks held in customs custody at airports for use as supplies on aircraft engaged in foreign flights. Accounting for the withdrawals of such products is necessary to protect the revenue by detecting and preventing diversion of such non-taxpaid products into the domestic market, which is subject to tax.

Form: None.

Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profits.

Estimated Number of Respondents: 25.

Frequency of Response: On occasion.

Estimated Total Number of Annual Responses: 25.

Estimated Time per Response: 100 hours.

Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 2,500.
