January 11, 2019

In 2018, the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC) amended Rule 41.56 Out-of-State Winery Direct Shipper's Permits to require more frequent reporting by direct shipper permittees and require permittees to include the name of the common carrier and unique common carrier tracking number for each shipment on their reports. Additionally, the gallonage threshold for frequency of reporting increased from 4,000 gallons to 5,000 gallons shipped annually to Texas consumers.
