PREPARATION OF FORM 179
Proprietors of distilled spirits
plants and others concerned:
Purpose. This circular is issued to advise you of an error in
Instruction No. 2 on the June 1965 revision of Form 179.
Background. Form 179 was revised in June 1965 so as to
provide, through amendment of the instructions, for an extra
copy of the form to be retained by the assigned officers.
Through error, Instruction No. 2 was not revised so as to
provide for the preparation of the necessary extra copy, when
the form covers an application for withdrawal for purposes
other than rectification or bottling.
Procedure. Pending the next printing of Form 179, when Instruction
No. 2 will be appropriately revised, proprietors preparing Form 179
under such instructions should prepare it in quadruplicate rather
than in triplicate.
Inquiries. Inquiries regarding this circular should refer to its
number and be addressed to your assistant regional commissioner
(alcohol and tobacco tax).

Director, Alcohol and Tobacco Tax Division
