Transfer in Bond Application Turnaround

Recommended Posts

I wasn't about to find this anywhere else on the forums or on the TTB website under processing times. Does anyone have a rough idea how long it takes for the TTB to approve a transfer in bond application once it's submitted?

I believe it only took a few weeks for our TIB to be approved.   Looks like I submitted application on 7/14/2017 and received approval on 7/25/2017.

I'm with Silk on this one. A few days.  Is this first one you've done? Did you have to get a new bond?

I'm not required to carry a bond now, I was under the required tax threshold and they gave me an exemption. The transfer to me would still put me well under, it's just a few barrels really. But this is the first transfer in bond that I've done. I submitted it back on 10/26, so it would be 2 weeks now it's sitting pending review. I guess I thought it wouldn't take this long? How long would you wait to follow up if it was you?

In our experience it is all dependent on the ttb agent assigned. We submitted 2 a day apart 3 months ago. They were assigned to two different officers. The second one was approved in 8 days. The first one sat idle for 30 days till we we made an inquiry. It was approved the next day.

Sometimes it is quick ; sometimes it isn't.  I can't explain that.  I have had the thought that they may batch process them, so if you go in the day before they process the batch, bingo, you are a winner, but if you go in the day after, oops, you gotta  wait.  I do not know this.  It  is a guess based on the fact that there are no gray areas they have to navigate.  The review can't take more than a few minutes.  The questions : (1) "Do yo need a bond,?"  If no proceed to (3).  If yes,  then (2)"Is the bond sufficient?"   If no, reject.  If yes, proceed to (3), "Are the names, addresses, and permit numbers all correct according to TTB's database?".  If so, push the approve button.  Of not, reject.  So I can';t imagine someone taking a month to review one unless they delay the review and process them by batch.  Al;l of which doesn't matter, because the only answer is that it is unpredictable and after two weeks, I would ask.
