Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB)

The TTB is the primary federal regulator of the alcohol industry. Alcohol wholesalers must have a TTB permit, and these businesses rely on the TTB to provide clarity on regulations to operate legally. The TTB is also responsible for:

  • Collecting alcohol excise taxes. In FY 2022, the TTB achieved a return on investment of more than $340 for every dollar spent on collection activities.
  • Enforcing the Federal Alcohol Administration Act and other federal laws that promote fair competition, support state alcohol regulation and prevent tainted alcohol products from reaching consumers.
  • Maintaining a level playing field and facilitating a robust and diverse marketplace.

We Encourage Congress To:

  • Support and fully fund the TTB.
