Many thanks to craft distiller's dedicated advocacy in 2019, we were able to urge Congress to extend the Craft Beverage Modernization and Tax Reform Act (CBMTRA) for one year. This year, we need to urge Congress to make CBMTRA PERMANENT. Distillers face tremendous uncertainty during the ongoing COVID-19 crisis – and uncertainty about federal excise tax (FET) rates shouldn’t add to that burden. However, with 2020 being an election year and COVID-19 continuing to impact our industry and our country, we need your help to make sure this issue stays at the top of Congress’ mind.
DISCUS has taken the lead to create a Spirits United CBMTRA Advocacy Toolkit to make craft distiller's virtual advocacy efforts that much easier. This toolkit will serve as a road map for craft distiller's to engage your employees, consumers, and supply chain partners to help us make the Craft Beverage Modernization and Tax Reform Act PERMANENT.
