On May 18, 2020, the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau issued Public Guidance TTB G 2020-4 regarding the Tax-Free Withdrawal of Distilled Spirits and Products Containing Distilled Spirits for Hand Sanitizer Purposes under the CARES Act and TTB Guidance. Through this Guidance, the TTB addressed tax exemptions for distilled spirits used in hand sanitizer pursuant to the CARES Act and extended the exemptions authorized under the TTB’s prior Guidance (“Production of Hand Sanitizer to Address the COVID-19 Pandemic” - TTB G 2020-1A). Those exemptions, which had been set to expire on June 30, 2020, will now expire on December 31, 2020.
