Drawback Tutorial Home
After having reviewed thousands of nonbeverage drawback formulas, many of which contained similar errors, TTB’s Nonbeverage Products Laboratory (NPL) chemists decided to construct a tutorial to both codify what the NPL is looking for in formulas and to assist industry members with questions when filling out the TTB Form 5154.1 The Tutorial is topic-based with similar topics grouped under a general heading.
In addition to the topical listing, the Tutorial contains worksheets to determine whether a product is unfit for beverage purposes and ones to assist in performing the calculations required on the form. There are sample formulas representing various types of manufacturing processes and explanations of the calculations for each of these types.
As issues evolve and as time allows, the NPL will expand the topics and the types of sample formulas. Please sign up to be notified of tutorial updates by clicking here ( Get Email Updates ). You can make suggestions for topics and formulas by contacting the NPL at email@example.com however, please do not send status requests to this address.
Alternative, the most efficient way to submit these forms is electronically using Formulas Online. For help on how to register and submit formulas please see nonbeverage webinar: http://www.ttb.gov/ssd/presentations/formulas-online-webinar.pdf
