Treasury Reviewing Information Collection on Imported or Returned Tobacco Products
The Treasury Department’s Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau is accepting comments through June 5 on form F 5200.11, Notice of Release of Tobacco Products, Cigarette Papers, or Cigarette Tubes.
The Internal Revenue Code provides for the release of imported or returned tobacco products and cigarette papers and tubes from customs custody, without tax, for delivery to an export warehouse proprietor or a manufacturer of tobacco products or cigarette papers and tubes. This form is used at importation to document the release of such articles to a proprietor or manufacturer authorized to receive them. It is used by industry members who are not filing their entry information electronically through the Automated Commercial Environment.
TTB states that new data fields have been added to this form for the employer identification number of the recipient manufacturer or proprietor and the TTB permit number of the importer. TTB is also clarifying the titles of certain data fields and the form’s instructions to improve the accuracy of the information reported by the recipient of the imported or returned articles.
