Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) recently began testing a new version of its Permits Online system. The new interface aims to provide several big improvements for users. Among them:

  1. Currently certain types of amendments must be filed individually, forcing industry members to wait for approval of their first amendment to submit their second. The new system should allow for most types of amendments to be bundled together into a single submission thereby reducing wait times;
  2. Personal Questionnaires, which are currently filed separately from a permit, will be filed under the same interface as an amendment to add new personnel; and
  3. Users can enter company-wide changes once and then populate to all permits held by a company.

TTB has not yet released a timeframe for these changes.
