Title: Certificate of Taxpaid Alcohol. Form: TTB F 5100.4. Abstract: Under 27 CFR 17.181, medicinal preparations and flavoring extracts produced in the United States and then exported, are eligible for drawback of all Federal alcohol excise taxes paid on the distilled spirits used to make the product, as provided in 19 U.S.C. 1313(d). These export drawback claims are made to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and may cover either the full rate of the distilled spirits excise tax paid on the alcohol (if the respondent has made no nonbeverage drawback claim to TTB under 26 U.S.C. 5114 (see OMB control number 1513– 0030), or may cover the remainder of the excise tax paid on the spirits if a claim under 26 U.S.C. 5114 was previously made. When such a drawback claim is to be made, the industry member submits TTB F 5100.4 to TTB, and TTB certifies the form to show that the excise taxes claimed for drawback were previously paid and not previously refunded. TTB returns the certified form to the respondent, who then submits it to CBP as part of the respondent’s export drawback claim. TTB keeps a copy of the form on file to compare with future submissions in order to prevent duplication.
