Congress Passes Fed Excise Tax Relief for Spirits Removed For Use in Hand Sanitizer

Recommended Posts

Just about an hour ago (weds night) they finally passed the bill and it includes some pretty nice language:


No federal excise tax for the entirety of 2020 spirit removals for hand sanitizer.

Even bigger is that all you have to do is follow WHO.  AND bulk sales / labeling requirements are waived.  For once - some decent legislation.  Thank goodness.

House is supposed to vote on this on Friday AM so CALL YOUR REPS although one would hope this is a no-brainer.

Given that the FDA guidance is that we have to denature this means absolutely nothing at the moment.  If the FDA comes out with a new circular exempting us from denaturing then it will help.
