Information Collections Open for Comment Currently, we are seeking comments on the following forms, letterhead applications or notices, recordkeeping requirements, questionnaires, or surveys: OMB Control No. 1513–0016 Title: Drawback on Wines Exported. TTB Form Number: TTB F 5120.24. Abstract: The Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, (IRC) at 26 U.S.C. 5062(b), provides, in general, that exporters of taxpaid domestic wine may claim ‘‘drawback’’ (refund) of the Federal excise tax paid or determined on the exported wine. Under the TTB regulations, exporters use form TTB F 5120.24 to document the wine’s exportation and to submit drawback claims for the exported wine. TTB uses the provided information to determine if the exported wine is eligible for drawback and to verify the amount of drawback claimed by the exporter. This information is necessary to protect the revenue. Current Actions: There are no changes to this information collection or its estimated burden, and TTB is submitting it for extension purposes only. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profits. Estimated Annual Burden • Number of Respondents: 40. • Average Responses per Respondent: 4. • Number of Responses: 160. • Average per-response Burden: 67 minutes. • Total Burden: 179 hours.

Abstract: The IRC at 26 U.S.C. 5214(a)(6) and 5362(c)(4) authorizes the transfer without payment of tax of, respectively, distilled spirits and wine from a bonded premises to certain customs bonded warehouses. Under 19 U.S.C. 1311, bonds are required for such transfers to protect the revenue. In order to provide proprietors of manufacturing bonded warehouses with operational flexibility based on individual need, TTB allows the filing of either a specific bond to cover a single shipment, using form TTB F 5100.12, or a continuing bond to cover multiple shipments, using form TTB F 5110.67. Current Actions: There are no changes to this information collection or its estimated burden, and TTB is submitting it for extension purposes only. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profits. Estimated Annual Burden • Number of Respondents: 50. • Average Responses per Respondent: One. • Number of Responses: 50. • Average per-response Burden: 1 hour. • Total Burden: 50 hours. OMB Control No. 1513–0056 Title: Distilled Spirits Plants— Transaction and Supporting Records. TTB Recordkeeping Number: TTB REC 5110/05. Abstract: In general, the IRC at 26 U.S.C. 5001 imposes Federal alcohol excise tax on distilled spirits produced or imported into the United States. The IRC at 26 U.S.C. 5207 provides that the proprietor of a distilled spirits plant (DSP) must maintain records related to their production, storage, denaturing, and processing activities, and must render reports covering those activities. In addition, other IRC sections, including 26 U.S.C. 5008, 5062, 5201, 5204, 5211–5215, 5223, 5362, 5370, 5373, 5555, and 5559, place various requirements on DSPs that authorize or require recordkeeping. Under those IRC authorities, the TTB regulations in 27 CFR part 19, require DSP proprietors to keep records regarding their production, storage, denaturing, and processing activities, which DSP proprietors use to generate monthly operations reports (approved under other OMB control numbers) regarding those activities. In addition, under the regulations in 27 CFR parts 19, 26, 27, and 28, DSP proprietors also must keep certain other VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:41 Nov 15, 2019 Jkt 250001 records, including records related to shipment and transfer of alcohol, plant security, wine tax credit, and alternation of premises. The collected information is necessary to protect the revenue. Current Actions: There are no program changes associated with this information collection. However, due to a change in agency estimates resulting from continued growth in the number of distilled spirits plants in the United States, TTB is increasing the number of annual respondents, responses, and burden hours reported for this collection. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Affected Public: Businesses and other for-profits. Estimated Annual Burden • Number of Respondents: 3,340. • Average Responses per Respondent: Once per year. • Number of Responses: 3,340. • Average per-response Burden: 21.8 hours. • Total Burden: 72,812. OMB Control No. 1513–0061 Title: Letterhead Applications and Notices Relating to Denatured Spirits. TTB Recordkeeping Number: TTB REC 5150/2. Abstract: Under the IRC at 26 U.S.C. 5214, denatured spirits (alcohol to which denaturants have been added to render it unfit for beverage purposes) may be withdrawn from distilled spirits plants free of tax for nonbeverage industrial purposes in the manufacture of certain personal and household products. Since it is possible to recover potable alcohol from denatured spirits and articles made with denatured spirits, the IRC at 26 U.S.C. 5271–5275 sets forth provisions relating to denatured spirits and articles made with denatured spirits. Under those IRC authorities, the TTB regulations in 27 CFR part 20 require specially denatured spirits (SDS) dealers and manufacturers of nonbeverage products made with denatured alcohol to apply for and obtain a permit. In addition, the part 20 regulations that concern this information collection require such permit holders to submit letterhead applications and notices to TTB regarding certain changes to permit information, use of alternate methods and emergency variations from requirements, adoption or use of certain formulas, discontinuance of business, losses in transit, and requests to waive certain sample shipment and invoice requirements. The information collected implements the IRC’s statutory provisions regarding denatured spirits. PO 00000 Frm 00113 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 63717 Current Actions: While there are no changes to the information collected, TTB is submitting this collection as a revision as a matter of agency discretion. TTB notes that this collection consists of letterhead applications and notices submitted to TTB and, as such, this collection should be characterized as a reporting requirement, rather than as a recordkeeping requirement as previously reported. In addition, due to changes in agency estimates resulting from growth in the number of SDS dealers and in the number of nonbeverage product manufacturers, TTB is increasing the number of respondents, responses, and burden hours associated with this collection. Type of Review: Revision of a currently approved collection. Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profits; and State, local, and tribal governments. Estimated Annual Burden • Number of Respondents: 5,000. • Average Responses per Respondent: One. • Number of Responses: 5,000. • Average per-response Burden: 30 minutes. • Total Burden: 2,500 hours. OMB Control No. 1513–0086 Title: Marks on Equipment and Structures (TTB REC 5130/3), and Marks and Labels on Containers of Beer (TTB REC 5130/4). Abstract: Under the authority of chapter 51 of the IRC (26 U.S.C. chapter 51), the TTB regulations require marks, signs, and suitable measuring devices at breweries to identify the use and capacity of brewery equipment and structures and the contents of tanks, as well as to identify taxpaid and nontaxpaid beer. To identify products for purposes of administering the IRC’s excise tax provisions, the TTB regulations also require marks, labels, and brands on kegs, cases, cans, and bottles of beer. These marks, labels, and brands identify the name or trade name of the brewer, the place of production of the beer, the contents of the container, and the nature of the product (beer, ale, etc.). The placement of the required disclosures and information on brewery structures, equipment, and products is a usual and customary business practice. Current Actions: There are no program changes associated with this information collection. However, due to a change in agency estimates resulting from continued growth in the number of breweries in the United States, TTB is increasing the number of annual respondents and responses reported for E:\FR\FM\18NON1.SGM 18NON1 63718 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 222 / Monday, November 18, 2019 / Notices this collection. However, as an information collection involving usual and customary business practices, the estimated total burden associated with this collection requirement, zero hours, remains unchanged. Type of Review: Revision of a currently approved collection. Affected Public: Businesses and other for-profits. Estimated Annual Burden • Number of Respondents: 10,000. • Average Responses per Respondent: One. • Number of Responses: 10,000. • Average per-response and Total Burden: None. (Per the OMB regulation at 5 CFR 1320.3(b)(2), there is no burden associated with usual and customary business practices such as the marking and labeling of structures, equipment, and product containers. OMB Control No. 1513–0111 Title: COLAs Online Access Request. TTB Form Number: TTB F 5013.2. Abstract: Respondents use this form to apply for access to TTB’s COLAs Online system, which allows alcohol beverage industry members to electronically apply for a Certificate of Label Approval (COLA) or for an exemption from label approval. TTB uses the provided information to identify the company on whose behalf the applicant claims to act, to verify the scope of the applicant’s authority to act, and to evaluate the applicant’s qualifications for access to the COLAs Online system before TTB issues that person a password allowing access to this TTB web-based information system. Controlling access to TTB computer systems is necessary to protect the COLAs Online system from unauthorized users and other threats. Current Actions: There are no changes to this information collection or its estimated burden, and TTB is submitting it for extension purposes only. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Affected Public: Individuals or households. Estimated Annual Burden • Number of Respondents: 3,000. • Average Responses per Respondent: One. • Number of Responses: 3,000. • Average per-response Burden: 18 minutes. • Total Burden: 900 hours. OMB Control No. 1513–0124 Title: Customer Satisfaction Surveys for Permit Applications, Permits Online VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:41 Nov 15, 2019 Jkt 250001 (PONL), Formulas Online (FONL), and COLAs Online. Abstract: As part of TTB’s efforts to improve customer service, we survey customers who submit applications for original or amended permits, or for approval of formulas or certificates of label approval (COLAs). These surveys assist TTB in identifying potential customer needs and problems, along with opportunities for improvement in our applications processes, with particular focus on customer experiences with TTB’s various electronic application systems, Permits Online (PONL), Formulas Online (FONL), and COLAs Online. Current Actions: There are no changes to this voluntary information collection or its estimated burden, and TTB is submitting it for extension purposes only. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profits. Estimated Annual Burden • Number of Respondents: 30,000. • Average Responses per Respondent: One. • Number of Responses: 30,000. • Average per-response Burden: 12 minutes. • Total Burden: 6,000 hours.

    Title: Distilled Spirits Plants--Transaction and Supporting 
Records.
    TTB Recordkeeping Number: TTB REC 5110/05.
    Abstract: In general, the IRC at 26 U.S.C. 5001 imposes Federal 
alcohol excise tax on distilled spirits produced or imported into the 
United States. The IRC at 26 U.S.C. 5207 provides that the proprietor 
of a distilled spirits plant (DSP) must maintain records related to 
their production, storage, denaturing, and processing activities, and 
must render reports covering those activities. In addition, other IRC 
sections, including 26 U.S.C. 5008, 5062, 5201, 5204, 5211-5215, 5223, 
5362, 5370, 5373, 5555, and 5559, place various requirements on DSPs 
that authorize or require recordkeeping. Under those IRC authorities, 
the TTB regulations in 27 CFR part 19, require DSP proprietors to keep 
records regarding their production, storage, denaturing, and processing 
activities, which DSP proprietors use to generate monthly operations 
reports (approved under other OMB control numbers) regarding those 
activities. In addition, under the regulations in 27 CFR parts 19, 26, 
27, and 28, DSP proprietors also must keep certain other records, 
including records related to shipment and transfer of alcohol, plant 
security, wine tax credit, and alternation of premises. The collected 
information is necessary to protect the revenue.
    Current Actions: There are no program changes associated with this 
information collection. However, due to a change in agency estimates 
resulting from continued growth in the number of distilled spirits 
plants in the United States, TTB is increasing the number of annual 
respondents, responses, and burden hours reported for this collection.
    Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.
    Affected Public: Businesses and other for-profits.

    Title: Letterhead Applications and Notices Relating to Denatured 
Spirits.
    TTB Recordkeeping Number: TTB REC 5150/2.
    Abstract: Under the IRC at 26 U.S.C. 5214, denatured spirits 
(alcohol to which denaturants have been added to render it unfit for 
beverage purposes) may be withdrawn from distilled spirits plants free 
of tax for nonbeverage industrial purposes in the manufacture of 
certain personal and household products. Since it is possible to 
recover potable alcohol from denatured spirits and articles made with 
denatured spirits, the IRC at 26 U.S.C. 5271-5275 sets forth provisions 
relating to denatured spirits and articles made with denatured spirits. 
Under those IRC authorities, the TTB regulations in 27 CFR part 20 
require specially denatured spirits (SDS) dealers and manufacturers of 
nonbeverage products made with denatured alcohol to apply for and 
obtain a permit. In addition, the part 20 regulations that concern this 
information collection require such permit holders to submit letterhead 
applications and notices to TTB regarding certain changes to permit 
information, use of alternate methods and emergency variations from 
requirements, adoption or use of certain formulas, discontinuance of 
business, losses in transit, and requests to waive certain sample 
shipment and invoice requirements. The information collected implements 
the IRC's statutory provisions regarding denatured spirits.
    Current Actions: While there are no changes to the information 
collected, TTB is submitting this collection as a revision as a matter 
of agency discretion. TTB notes that this collection consists of 
letterhead applications and notices submitted to TTB and, as such, this 
collection should be characterized as a reporting requirement, rather 
than as a recordkeeping requirement as previously reported. In 
addition, due to changes in agency estimates resulting from growth in 
the number of SDS dealers and in the number of nonbeverage product 
manufacturers, TTB is increasing the number of respondents, responses, 
and burden hours associated with this collection.
    Type of Review: Revision of a currently approved collection.
    Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profits; and State, local, 
and tribal governments.
Estimated Annual Burden
     Number of Respondents: 5,000.
     Average Responses per Respondent: One.
     Number of Responses: 5,000.
     Average per-response Burden: 30 minutes.
     Total Burden: 2,500 hours.

    Title: Marks on Equipment and Structures (TTB REC 5130/3), and 
Marks and Labels on Containers of Beer (TTB REC 5130/4).
    Abstract: Under the authority of chapter 51 of the IRC (26 U.S.C. 
chapter 51), the TTB regulations require marks, signs, and suitable 
measuring devices at breweries to identify the use and capacity of 
brewery equipment and structures and the contents of tanks, as well as 
to identify taxpaid and nontaxpaid beer. To identify products for 
purposes of administering the IRC's excise tax provisions, the TTB 
regulations also require marks, labels, and brands on kegs, cases, 
cans, and bottles of beer. These marks, labels, and brands identify the 
name or trade name of the brewer, the place of production of the beer, 
the contents of the container, and the nature of the product (beer, 
ale, etc.). The placement of the required disclosures and information 
on brewery structures, equipment, and products is a usual and customary 
business practice.
    Current Actions: There are no program changes associated with this 
information collection. However, due to a change in agency estimates 
resulting from continued growth in the number of breweries in the 
United States, TTB is increasing the number of annual respondents and 
responses reported for

this collection. However, as an information collection involving usual 
and customary business practices, the estimated total burden associated 
with this collection requirement, zero hours, remains unchanged.
    Type of Review: Revision of a currently approved collection.
    Affected Public: Businesses and other for-profits.
Estimated Annual Burden
     Number of Respondents: 10,000.
     Average Responses per Respondent: One.
     Number of Responses: 10,000.
     Average per-response and Total Burden: None. (Per the OMB 
regulation at 5 CFR 1320.3(b)(2), there is no burden associated with 
usual and customary business practices such as the marking and labeling 
of structures, equipment, and product containers.

    Title: COLAs Online Access Request.
    TTB Form Number: TTB F 5013.2.
    Abstract: Respondents use this form to apply for access to TTB's 
COLAs Online system, which allows alcohol beverage industry members to 
electronically apply for a Certificate of Label Approval (COLA) or for 
an exemption from label approval. TTB uses the provided information to 
identify the company on whose behalf the applicant claims to act, to 
verify the scope of the applicant's authority to act, and to evaluate 
the applicant's qualifications for access to the COLAs Online system 
before TTB issues that person a password allowing access to this TTB 
web-based information system. Controlling access to TTB computer 
systems is necessary to protect the COLAs Online system from 
unauthorized users and other threats.
