XT 2002-05  - Alcoholic Beverage Reporting Changes for Out-of-State Wine Suppliers

Currently the Department of Commerce, Division of Liquor Control, requires two copies of the invoices for wine bottled outside of Ohio and shipped into Ohio and intended for sale in Ohio to be provided to the Ohio Department of Taxation. This process was initially established in cooperation with the Department of Commerce, Division of Liquor Control.

Substitute House Bill Number 371, 124th General Assembly, transfers the responsibility for administering this program to the Department of Taxation. Please continue sending two copies of the invoices to the Ohio Department of Taxation, Excise Tax Division, P.O. Box 530, Columbus, Ohio 43216-0530. The bill also authorizes the filing of the invoice information electronically in a format prescribed by this Department. The electronic format must contain your name, the purchaser's name, invoice number, invoice date and the number of gallons by wine less than 14 percent alcohol, wine between 14 percent and 21 percent alcohol, vermouth, mixed beverages, sparkling beverages, and cider less than 6 percent alcohol.
