    Wholesaler Reporting Changes

    The Tennessee General Assembly recently passed legislation that makes changes to the expansion of the Retail Accountability Program. Beer and tobacco wholesalers should continue to report their sales to retailers. However, no reports will be required from wholesalers of food, candy or non-alcoholic beverages until July 25, 2016, when first and second quarter reports will be due. Information about additional changes will be added soon to the Retail Accountability page.

    Assessments

    The Retail Accountability Program will not issue any assessments based on reports from wholesalers of food, candy or non-alcoholic beverages until 2017. However, the program continues to match wholesaler reports of beer and tobacco sales to retailers' reported taxable sales.
