Alcohol Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau

The Alcohol Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (“TBT”) administers a complex program regulating the movement and handling of alcohol, including fuel alcohol.

This program determines the point at which the alcohol excise tax is imposed.

Compliance with these regulations is a critical element of ethanol trading. Our professionals assist clients in the following areas:

  • Permits to import denatured and undenatured ethanol into the United States
  • Distilled Spirits Plants and Alcohol Fuel Plants
  • Import, trade, and export of ethanol tax-free
  • Removal of ethanol from TTB bond/custody tax-free
  • Regulatory requirements affecting denaturant type and volume
