TTB Seal


Due to the lapse in government funding, only websites supporting excepted functions will be updated unless otherwise funded.  Our TTB website,, will be available during this shutdown period, and you will continue to be able to file electronic payments and returns for federal excise taxes and operational reports through

You will also be able to access TTB’s eGovernment applications, including Permits Online, Formulas Online, and COLAs Online, during the shutdown period, but submissions will not be reviewed or approved until appropriations are enacted.  In addition, other information on this website may not be up to date, and TTB will not be able to respond to questions or comments submitted via the website until appropriations are enacted.

TTB will suspend all non-excepted TTB operations, and no personnel will be available to respond to any inquiries, including emails, telephone calls, facsimiles, or other communications. The website and operations will fully resume when appropriations are reenacted.  TTB has directed employees NOT to report to work and they are prohibited by federal law from volunteering their services during a lapse in appropriations.

Once funding has been restored and the government shutdown is over, we will work to restore regular service as soon as possible.

TTB employees should monitor the Funding Lapse Information page for updated shutdown and furlough guidance.
