FYI, I finally registered (nothing like waiting until the last minute, huh?) and sent these questions to Lisa. Looks like there have been several other questions submitted, so this should be good!

 

Questions about form 5110.40 (PRODUCTION) report:
 
PRODUCTION Scenario: My company makes an intermediate product (low wines) which are later distilled again into either GNS or Whiskey.
  1. If, at the end of the month I have a batch of low wines and a batch of feints on hand, how should I report them on the PRODUCTION report? (perhaps other alcohol? Perhaps I don't report them until they are a final product?)
  2. If I have made a batch of GNS, of which some is re-distilled to become vodka and some is re-distilled to become gin, I assume I show this as "received for redistillation"? How does this effect Part II, line 7 "From redistillation"?
  3. When doing the quarterly physical inventory, how do I account for the low wines and feints?
  4. In Part III, I report barrels of whiskey (or gin) barreled or moved into tanks, but still in production, correct? But once they are produced, I am also reporting them in Part I, line 11 as "Entered in Storage Account", correct?
Questions about form 5110.11, the STORAGE report:
 
PROCESSING Scenario 1: We've now made a variety of products from the base spirit I produced (GNS). I have vodka and gin, and have further barreled some of the gin.
  1. Products produced in prior months and stored in wooden barrels go on "On hand first of month", whereas products produced this month (from 5110.40, Part III), go into "Deposited in bulk storage", correct?
  2. When product sits in tanks for a few weeks, it may lose some proof. When I previously reported say 100 PF of alcohol over 190, but now have 99.98 PG, do I show the rest in line 22, "other losses"?
  3. Do I report liquor lost during transfer in hoses, tank bottoms, etc as "Loss" or as "Destroyed"?
PROCESSING Scenario 2: I will take 5-6 barrels, dump them into a tank to blend them together, then put them right back into the barrels they were in so they can marry their flavors together. I'll keep them in for 3 months.
  1. How do I report this? Is it even necessary to?
  2. How do I report angels share?
  3. Are there any other details I need to report for this scenario?
 
PRODUCTION Scenario: We've now bottled our product and have it sitting in the bonded warehouse. I remove some from bond and take it to the tasting room to stock the shelves, other I remove as needed to fulfill wholesale orders, and some I take to a Certified Bonded Warehouse (CBW).
  1. What does Form 5110.28, line 6, "Dumped for further processing" mean? Is that what's used to report when I emptying barrels for proofing
  2. When items are shipped out of the country, are they excluded from line 33, "withdrawn tax determined", and instead reported under line 36, " for exportation, ..."?
  3. Should Part IV always match the sum of lines 33 and 36, above?
  4. Form 5100.11, "Withdrawn for export", should match line 36, on this report, correct?

I want to thank you Lisa and everyone else involved in setting up the Distilled Spirits Compliance Seminar! It was money well spent and a huge help to me personally (I assume to most of the other attendees as well).

I second Alex's remarks. Thanks, Lisa! We now have 22 folks who know a lot more than they did before about how to fill out all the TTB reports. Thanks for helping us stay out of jail!
