Proprietors of Distilled Spirits Plants, Manufacturers of Nonbeverage Products, and others concerned:

Industry Circular No. 66-7, dated March 22, 1966, called attention to the regulatory requirement that manufacturers of nonbeverage products obtain certain information from Forms 179 and 2630 to support claims for drawback of tax.

Under the provisions of 26 CFR 197.113, a claim covering distilled spirits received in barrels, drums, or other portable containers bearing distilled spirits stamps shall be accompanied by a statement showing, among other things, the name of the producer, blender, or warehouseman as shown on Form 2630. In view of the fact that the name of the producer, blender, or warehouseman, as shown on Form 2630, is also shown on the covering Form 179, the information required by 26 CFR 197.113 may be secured from Form 179 in any instance in which a Form 2630 does not accompany the Form 179.

Inquiries regarding this circular should refer to its number and be addressed to your Assistant Regional Commissioner, Alcohol and Tobacco Tax.
