Texas Direct Ship Permittees:

Starting September 1, 2019 the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC) is planning to start random audits of Out-of-State Winery Direct Shipper permittees. Texas would like to insure Direct Ship permittees are in compliance with Texas rules and regulations.
If you are chosen for an audit, they will want to see the following records:
• Texas Wine shipments reported
• Excise tax paid, if applicable
• Verification the gallons stipulation was applied (nine gallons per month/ 36 per year per Texas resident), and
• That a TABC certified carrier was used
If a permittee has ever received a non-compliance notice from TABC, they have a greater chance of audit. Permittee’s should always be prepared for an audit. All Direct Ship states are moving in this direction.
If you have any questions or concerns do not hesitate to contact us at (805) 227-9914 or nancy@uncorkedcompliance.com.
