REPORTING THE USE OF HOP EXTRACTS
Brewers and others concerned:
A revenue procedure prescribing the reporting of the use of hop extracts will soon
be published in the Internal Revenue Bulletin. The procedure will read as follows:
Section 1. Purpose.
The purpose of this Revenue Procedure is to establish a procedure for reporting on
Form 103, Brewer's Monthly Report of Operations, the quantities of hop extracts and
their equivalent pounds of hops used in the production of malt beverages. No change
is prescribed in the manner of reporting the pounds of hops used in their natural
Section 2. Background.
Because of the brewing industry's increasing use of hop extracts, and the variety
of concentrations in use, it is considered desirable for statistical purposes to have
reported the equivalent pounds of hops of the hop extracts used.
Section 3. Reporting Procedures.
Quantities of hop extracts, and their equivalents in pounds of hops, used in the
manufacture of malt beverages shall be reported in pounds as two separate items in
Part II of Form 103. The hop extracts, in pounds, and their equivalents, shall be
reported essentially by modifying columns of Part II of Form 103, in the manner illustrated below:
Section 4. Effective Date.
The reporting procedure prescribed herein shall be effective beginning with the
monthly report covering transactions occurring during the month of January 1972.
Inquiries regarding this circular should refer to its number and be addressed to
your Assistant Regional Commissioner, Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.
Rex D. Davis,
Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms Division
