July 25, 2007

The Governor of Missouri has signed SB 299 transitioning Missouri from a reciprocal state to a permit state. As of August 28, 2007 wineries will be required to have a Direct Wine Shipper’s Permit issued by the Missouri Division of Alcohol and Tobacco Control (ATC) and pay excise taxes in order to ship to MO consumers. The permit applications and instructions are now available on the Wine Institute website.

The application must be notarized and applicants must attach a current copy of the alcohol beverage license issued by their state of residence and a copy of the winery license from the TTB. There is no application fee. The Direct Wine Shipper’s Permit allows wineries to ship up to two cases of wine each month to a consumer. Direct Wine Shippers must submit a report by January 31 of each year stating the total amount of wine shipped into the state the preceding year and pay excise taxes. The permit does not require wineries to pay sales tax.

Completed applications should be mailed to Liquor Control Division, P.O. Box 837, Jefferson City, MO 65102. The ATC expects to begin processing applications the week before the new law goes into effect. Approved permits will be mailed to the applicants. As of August 28, 2007 wineries should not ship to MO consumers until they have received their approved permit. Should you have any questions please contact Annie Bones at the Wine Institute at 415-356-7530.

Update: The Direct Wine Shipper’s Application posted on the Missouri Division of Alcohol and Tobacco and Wine Institute websites earlier this week is being revised. Wineries should disregard the application originally posted. Wineries will be notified as soon as the updated application becomes available.
