Whoa, Whoa, Whoa… BOE, TTB, DEH.


Glad to say we are finally getting our TTB paperwork out the door. We had to wait for our Seller’s Permit to get approved, which ended up being a ridiculously tedious process thanks to some incorrect advice given by the Board of Equalization, they told us we could send the paperwork to the Sacramento Office along with our excise tax paperwork, but it turned out that the Seller’s Permit is a local thing. So, that had to be transfered to the San Diego branch, which the Sacramento branch told us they did. The next day we got a “Notice to Appear” from the San Diego branch telling us they had not received our Seller’s Permit paperwork. We gave them a call and explained the situation, BUT they said we would probably end up having to resubmit the paper anyways. That did not make too much sense to us, so we called the Sacramento branch confirming that our paperwork had in fact been sent to the SD branch. So the waiting game began…

We called them a couple of times, but they never seemed to get the paperwork in the mail, until one day it mysteriously appeared on a desk a few cubicles over. Huzzah! Unfortunately due to a clerical error from several years ago, the Social Security number associated with our account was incorrectly typed. So they had to send us back the paper work and we had to provide proof that our SSN was the one we provided. A couple of tax statements later we were in business. Sent it back in the mail and waited again…

We called them a couple of times, but they never seemed to get the paperwork in the mail, until one day we received our Seller’s Permit in the mail. Huzzah! With our Seller’s Permit finally in hand I was able to mail off both our Department of Environmental Health planning application and the application for our TTB account!

With these in the works it is really only a matter of time before we are selling some artisanal ales around here.

  1. artisanal? Sounds like a certain Arrested Development word…

  2. Are you referring to Tobias Fünke ground breaking work as the world’s first “anal-rapist”?
