COMPLETE ADDRESS OF ASSISTANT REGIONAL COMMISSIONER
TO BE SHOWN ON FORM 1473
Proprietors of distilled spirits plants,
dealers in specially denatured spirits,
and others concerned:
Purpose. The purpose of this industry circular is to request your cooperation in our effort to eliminate delays in obtaining receipted copies of
Forms 1473 from your customers.
Background. The July 1960 revision of Form 1473, Notice of Shipment of
Specially Denatured, Tax-Free, or Recovered Spirits, requires the entry
(in item 15) of only the city and State as the address of the Assistant
Regional Commissioner to whom consignees are to forward a receipted copy of
the form. This has often caused delays in receiving the receipted copies
of the forms in our regional offices. The Form 1473 was revised as of
January 1964 and one of the changes was to require the complete postal
address of the Assistant Regional Commissioner (in item 12). However, as
a measure of economy, the existing stock of the July 1960 revision of the
form will be used before the January 1964 revision is put into use.
Preparation of Form 1473. Whether the July 1960 or the January 1964 revision of Form 1473 is used, if you will enter the complete address of the
appropriate Assistant Regional Commissioner to whom the consignee is to
send a receipted copy of the form, many of the delays will be avoided. It
is possible that added delays may have resulted from the recent realignment
of some of the regions. The map on the reverse hereof shows the regional
boundaries as well as the address of each Assistant Regional Commissioner
as it should appear in item 15 of the July 1960, and item 12 of the January
1964, revision of Form 1473. This map is furnished so that this information
will be readily available to you.
Inquiries. Inquiries regarding this circular should refer to its number and
should be addressed to the office of your Assistant Regional Commissioner,
Alcohol and Tobacco Tax.
