The Treasury Department’s Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau is increasing from $20,111 to $20,521 the maximum penalty for violations of the Alcoholic Beverage Labeling Act. This change will apply to all penalties assessed after Jan. 12.

The ABLA requires that a health warning statement appear on the labels of all containers of alcoholic beverages that are (a) imported, manufactured, or bottled for sale or distribution in the U.S. or (b) imported, manufactured, bottled, or labeled for sale, distribution, or shipment to members or units of the U.S. armed forces, including those located outside the U.S. Violations of the ABLA are subject to a civil penalty, with each day constituting a separate offense.
