The State of Tennessee Alcoholic Beverage Commission is responsible for licensing and has regulatory authority pertaining to alcoholic beverages. The commission has oversight of alcohol manufacturers, distillers, warehousemen, dealers, sales, mixing, taxes, wholesaler, and the transportation of beer and other alcoholic beverages. The Tennessee Code Annotated Section 57-1-102 thru 57-5-407 defines alcoholic beverages and beer tax requirements. Wholesalers that import alcoholic beverages into Tennessee or acquire from a Tennessee alcohol manufacturer are required to pay a tax on each gallon or portion of gallon sold or distributed (exception of wine for religious purpose).
The premium that you pay for a Tennessee Wholesaler Gallonage Tax Surety Bond is dependent on credit and the the bond amount required.
Effective January 1, 2017 alcoholic beverages with a content of 8% by weight that are sold for consumption on military bases and other US government properties are tax exempt in the form of a tax credit.
