Title: Alternate Methods or Procedures and Emergency Variations from Requirements for Exports of Liquors (TTB REC 5170/7). Abstract: Under the TTB regulations in 27 CFR part 28, exporters of alcohol may file applications requesting TTB approval of alternate methods or procedures and emergency variations from the requirements of that part. TTB uses such applications to determine if the requested method, procedure, or emergency variation will protect the revenue, is not contrary to law, and will not pose a burden to TTB in administering part 28, while allowing exporters the maximum operational flexibility. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 138. OMB Number: 1513–0097. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Title: Notices Relating to Payment of Firearms and Ammunition Excise Tax by Electronic Fund Transfer. Abstract: TTB collects Federal excise taxes on the sale or use of firearms and ammunition by firearms or ammunition manufacturers, importers, and producers, and taxpayers may remit their excise tax payments by electronic funds transfer (EFT), as authorized under 26 U.S.C. 6302. Taxpayers who elect to pay these taxes by EFT must furnish a written notice to TTB when they elect to use, or discontinue use of, EFT. TTB uses this information to anticipate and monitor taxpayer methods of payment and to ensure that taxes are remitted in the appropriate form, as chosen by the taxpayer. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 1. OMB Number: 1513–0100. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Title: Applications, Notices, and Relative to Importation and Exportation of Distilled Spirits, Wine, and Beer, Including Puerto Rico and Virgin Islands. Abstract: Distilled spirits, industrial alcohol, beer and wine are taxed when imported into the United States, but the Federal excise taxes collected on these commodities brought into the United States from Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands are largely returned to their respective governments. Exports are generally tax free. The documents required under this information collection ensure that the proper taxes are collected and returned according to law. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 180. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:25 Mar 31, 2016 Jkt 238001 OMB Number: 1513–0104. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Title: Information Collected in Support of Small Producer’s Wine Tax Credit (TTB REC 5120/11). Abstract: Under 26 U.S.C. 5041(c), certain small wine producers are eligible for a tax credit which may be taken to reduce the Federal excise tax they pay on wines removed from their premises. In addition, small producers can transfer their tax credit to bonded warehouses, which store their wine and ship it on their instructions. Under TTB regulations, the transferee uses information provided by the small producer to take the appropriate credit on behalf of the small producer, and the producer will use the information to monitor its own tax payments to ensure it does not exceed the authorized annual credit. The information is used by taxpayers in preparing their returns and by TTB to verify tax computation. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 2,800. Brenda Simms, Treasury PRA Clearance Officer.
